Does anyone have DISH TV??

I am wondering if anybody on here has dish tv and could answer a question for me. Is it possible to be watching one channel while recording another? I have been trying to do this and can't figure it out. I know that I can watch something that I have recorded while I am recording something else. If you know how to do this could you please tell me how to do it???

    I have Dish Network & the only way to watch something & record at the same time is if you either:

    A. Have 2 tv's hooked up to your dvr--this way one can be recording & you could be watching the other.

    B. You can watch your already recorded dvr's & record at the same time.

    I have DISH and am able to watch one show and record another via their built in hard drive digital recorder. I just program it to record a given program and then can watch a different show. The TIVO service would allow you to do the same thing.

    do you have a dish dvr receiver?

    If you dont you cant

    if you do you should also have a book with it.

    push record button

    make shure it is recording in the other room

    the other room tv must be hooked to dish service

    You have to have a second TV hooked up. It is a bot of a pain.
