If you have digital cable and a converter from your cable company how do you sequence that box and a DVR you buy so that you can record any channel and view one while recording another?

If you were receiving a broadband analog signal, you could put in a signal splitter after the cable box, one line going to your TV and the other line to the DVR, as each has its own tuner. They would both receive a full choice of channels.

Since you are receiving an encrypted digital signal, and want to two channels to change (for ''both'' the TV or the DVR), you might need two tuners, which essentially "splits" the digital signal to your desired channel across two.

Sometimes cable companies will give you a deal for two converter boxes.

Try looking at the VEG-N video unit by It might do what you want.

If you are on the channel that is being recorded, just change the channel and a message will pop up asking if you want to stop the recording - select Yes. You can go into the timer for the recording and stop it that way also by selecting Stop Recording.

All recording software packages are compatible with seven-channel sound (at the professional level, that is). Consider getting the one with the user interface you like the best.
