It depends on what you mean. If you use a RAM disc you can be recording one program to the disc while watching another title on the same disc.

Your DMR-ES46V combo recorder has a single analog tuner and a modulated RF output.

The ES46 modulated RF output determines that whatever signal is fed to the RF input is passed through to the RF output unless the machine is playing a DVD or recording to DVD or copying a videotaped recording to DVD, in which case that signal overrides the RF input signal from the cable box or satellite receiver or other tuning device. The ES46 remote control VCR/TV button restores the RF pass through feature while the ES46 is playing or recording a DVD. The VCR/TV button does not affect the ES46 component, composite, S-Video or HDMI outputs. The program being played or recorded will be the one present on those ES46 outputs.

Since the ES46 has only a single (analog) tuner a second tuning source is required in order to record a program from one signal source and watch a different program from another signal source.

Use the TV's remote to select between signal sources connected directly to various inputs on the TV. The TV's own tuner may be utilized if it has an antenna or converter box as a signal source.

We could maybe give him some suggestions if he can tell us if he wants OTA, cable, analog and/or digital.
