If you want to record 2 programs at the same time, you need 2 tuners. To switch to other tuner, press "TV" on black remote. Click "INPUT" on silver and then pick other tuner.

Thank you.

Does one need two external USB drives to record two programs simultaneously?

No, but IIRC you must format your drive to ext2 if you want to be able to record two channels at once, because the VRX's NTFS driver is so slow that it can't keep up if you ask it to record more than one show at a time.

Yes, even the drive on tuner 1 needs to be formatted EXT2. BTW, I was able to mount the drive with recordings on a Macintosh and was able to play the videos.
