I am interested in recording one show while having the ability to watch another. That said, here are the details: I have a plasma HDTV with a HD cable box tuner set up plus a dvd and a 5.1 home theater component setup. Also have a VCR on a separate line & small tv (bypassing the HD setup but that means a separate issue of recording then attaching front connections to watch the recording). (no HD of course) My cable company promises a dual hard drive pvr will be available SOMEDAY for about $1 per month. They presently offer a single but you must record the same channel you are watching. Considered TIVO but dumped that idea. How would YOU handle this small problem/goal? Buy a dual hard drive recorder, buy a single drive pvr or continue to use the vcr for now or what? Specific equipment recommendations and setup suggestions appreciated. (I have seen some of the wiring options but wanted to get first hand experience) Thanks for your help.
