Is it possible to watch one channel and record another channel at the same time.

The decoder has to 2 videos outputs right,so one goes to my TV and the other to my TV tuner on my laptop.If its possible how would set the channels for each output...

well you can watch one and record another. but the RF out from the digital decoder will be for FTA channels, and RCA output will be the subscription contents.

you may have to wait a bit longer to see if TCL will bring out dual-tuners decoder.

One other solution is get two decoders: one digital and one analog for $9.95 (if you are on digital already) or $19.95 (if you are still on analogue service).

If TCL hasn't got dual-tuners decoder, i will have my MCE setup with this, digital for MCE as we then can record PPV too LOL, and analogue for normal viewing.

Oh, if you want another digital decoder, there is a limit, i think it is 2 digital or is it 3?...

Internet is my backyard...
