DISH Network Vip722k questions: tuners, TV1/TV2, watch one show while recording another
I'm sorry in advance if these questions are really stupid. We are DISH newbies, after decades of cable (Charter). Our first DISH Receiver died, hard drive issues apparently, after three days. Not a great start. Anyhow, we're trying again, and maybe this is a simple fix that I'm just not understanding.
We have two TVs. One is in the family room, TV1. The other is in the bedroom, TV2. I understand that the receiver defaults to TV2 to record, unless there is a conflict. However, with Charter's DVR we could switch channels and not have to cancel our in-process recording(s). I've read some info that says if I switch the default to a single tuner mode, that we can then watch other shows while recording. When I tried this, though, it didn't seem to work. Do I need to reset the receiver for this to work properly, or is it another glitch that I need to work around somehow?
Thanks for any help ...
