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.

You lost the sound on one channel?

I beleive it is the converter box. Is it a "Insignia" or "Magnivox"?I have found that some converters loose some functions, sound being one, if they have trouble locking to a channel. If you have more than one converter and one has sound and another does not that would indicate tge converter has a problem. Weak signal, is generally the culprit. Here are some things to try. 1. Unplug converter from the wall for 5-10 min then plug it back in and turn it on. See if that will reset box and recover the original programing.. 2. Second option is to DELETE the affectred channel from the converter and re-scan. This can be a real pain depending on how good the instruction manual is.
