First, I am a newbie so please be gentle because I am also ignorant.

If I have a dual dish receiver with AV equipment that has a separate ATSC turner, is it possible to watch one channel while recording another?

Please be more specific on your equipment and model numbers.
Do you have DISH or Directv?
Is it a HDTV receiver with the ATSC tuner built in?
Is it an AV receiver with the ATSC tuner?
How is equipment hooked to TV?

I have nothing yet but getting ready to lay down some $$$$ for home entertainment system and am wanting flexibility to handle additional changes in the upcoming digital transition.


Do you have DISH or Directv?... I want Direct TV with dual receiver on satellite dish.
Is it a HDTV receiver with the ATSC tuner built in?--The second tuner would be that which is provided by Directtv
Is it an AV receiver with the ATSC tuner? the Onkyo TX-SR805S has an internal ATSC tuner.
How is equipment hooked to TV?- the HDMI cable, (but I will not have HD package from Dish)

I hope this makes sense.:confused: I think it does but I'm not the one reading it to answer my question.

Thanks for answering I was beginning to wonder if my question may have been perceived as a hack attempt...NOT!! Just dotting i's and crossing t's.

I would suggest that you try to find a good satellite dealer to talk to. I think you have some misconceptions that you need to clarify. Such as why do you want a dual tuner and what do you expect it to do. I don't understand your answer about the second tuner.

Thanks!

I will be speaking with someone to help me configure the entire system. If I have misconceptions they would be using various components for television viewing, music listening and a well rounded home entertainment system and doing so is not as simple or as easy as it once was. I am most appreciative of your input. :bow

The average consumer in my opinion is vulnerable to rip off !protest when it comes to putting a good quality system together for the appropriate living space. I can not tell express how disappointed I am in seeing the underbelly of business in approaching digital transition. But ya know, I don't think most people care (to say it politely).

Though I am pretty much a newbie, I an not an idiot meaning I can read learn and understand and come to boards like this and attempt to further the extent of what I know.

I only wish I new an expert personally then perhaps I could be the beneficiary of some well rounded input and move forward in achieving what I am willing to spend some bucks for. Satellite is only one piece of my puzzle.

Thanks again.

With the Onkyo TX-SR805S as the centerpiece of your AV setup, all external components will plug into it and it will be the brain. It has 3 HDMI inputs, which means you will have an HDMI input for DVD (standard, HD or BluRay), one for cable/sat TV service, and one left over for gaming or whatever. All audio and video from those sources will flow through this one AV unit. What you get determines what capabilities you will be able to use.

In other words, if you decide to go with DirecTV (D*) for TV service, you have several receivers (IRD's) to choose from. If you go with a DVR, you will get dual tuner functionality, plus the ability to add an off-air antenna to the DVR so you can get local programming in HD (if not already available through D* where you live).

This particular AV unit does not appear to have a built-in ATSC tuner (based on the zoomed in image available through Crutchfield's website). But that does not mean that you TV doesn't. If you TV has an ATSC tuner and TOSLink/Digital Coax Out, you can route the audio from the TV up to the AV unit and play the sound through there.

This is just a quick answer to some of your questions, but might get you past the initial confusion.

Thanks Atp.
I am still bogged into research and certainly appreciate the explanation. I will take what you have offered and research more.
I am wanting all sound through the receiver.
