is there a set button that does this?
I know on D* you press the down arrow twice to start dual live buffers.
thanks for any help.
The DVR constantly records two channels at the same time. The one you are watching and the last one you were watching. It only keeps up with the scheduled program. So if the channel you were watching changes shows, you won't be able to go to the show before it.
It can only record two streams at the same time. So, if you are recording two shows, you must be tuned to one of them for it to stay that way.
Does that help, or does it confuse you more?
