GOT A PVR CONNECTED BUT WHEN RECORDING TWO CHANNELS CARNT WATCH A THIRD,CAN A EXTRA BOX BE CONNECTED SO I CAN WATCH ANOTHER CHANNEL AT SAME TIME?
I would recommend the Gateway from Shaw. It would allow you to record up to 6 shows at once. You could record multiple shows and still be able to watch TV.
That is expected, you can to another input on your TV, but the remotes are the same, so your one remote would then control both terminals...
If it happens a lot (recording 2 programs and wanting to watch something else), and your PVR is new, you may want to consider the Gateway system instead. 6 tuners instead of 2.
It's really quite easy, set up your pvr to record 2 programs at the same time and leave the pvr on, then set your input on TV to TV setting and watch the 3rd channel in standard def. I do it all the time.
