Unfortunately no. The showstopper only has 1 tuner which limits it to processing a live signal 1 at a time be it a recording or viewing live TV. You can play a recorded show at anytime even when recording since the previous recorded show is finished with the tuner. You also can which is quite amazing play from the beginning up to live an inprocess recording. A vcr can not play at the beginning while still recording, you have to waite till the recording is over.
