Tonight I am recording TV2 (7:30pm) and Prime (8:30).
Its (say) 8:35pm, why cannot I watch TV1 without cancelling a recording (I forget which).

Doesn't the Tivo automatically add on a few minutes at the end in case the show runs late?

Um isn't Tivo only has two tuners? So you can watch a Channel and record?

At least NZ Tivo is?

MySky have the Record two progs and watch a third i think, but Tivo doesn't...

Ahh I assumed the show was an hour long.

If you were recording two shows you can't watch another channel live. You can record two and playback an existing recording. You can't record two shows and watch Live TV as the Tivo only has dual tuners.

TiVo has two tuners so it can only record two channels at one time. You can only watch a third program if it has already been recorded.

The TiVo has two tuners. You can record two channels and watch something you have already recorded. You cannot record two channels and watch a third channel from the TiVo device at the same time.

As Steve mentioned, check your settings for extended recording. Mine is usually set to record for 10 minutes after the expected end of the program.

Edit: SNAP! And yeah it's a movie on 2 tonight.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

sbiddle and BigHammer are correct. This is what the mytivo.co.nz site says in the FAQ:

How many programmes can I record at the same time?

You can record two programmes at the same time while watching a third, previously recorded programme. Your TiVo can also take on a fourth task at the same time...downloading a movie or TV programme!

The Zinwell 640( and I believe the other FV app PVR's ) will do this function

HTPC running MediaPortal is still the best option for multiple recording and watching live at the same time.

Come on build a htpc you know you want to.

Fixed.

You don't gets to keep what you pay for.  (but thats a whole other discussion and I'm just teasing)


Flicking between channels via 'Channel up / down' prompted a message when recording two channels that i'd have to cancel one.  Using the number key pad to go directly to the channel I wanted fixed that.  However, I'd have to check whether I was recording that channnel at the same time.  I suspect I was.  Clear as mud?

The Magic TV box has two tuners, you can record two programs and watch a third live prgram however it all comes down to what mux the channels are on. two muxes in use no problem but when you try to access the third mux it's not possible.

From what I understand :

TVNZ: 1,2,6,7
MediaWorks: 3,3+1,4
Kordia: all others

Quite useful but Prime has been a big headache being on a different mux... so it's a fight to watch Top Gear or whatever program is on tv2/3 d:)

I'm surprised that the Tivo box cant do the same?
