I like to record a program and then go off and watch something else forma while until I can zap through the commercials. I don't seem to be able to do this anymore. I called and the support person said it isn't available under the new navigator "upgrade". I told her this was a "down grade". Fibe lets you do it and even Bruce Municipal Telecom in little Southampton lets you do it. Whazzup Rogers! I want that feature back or I'm switching to Bell.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Imshould have added "go off and watch and then come back while the first show is recording and watch it". In other words, access a program while it is being recorded. Apparently that is no longer supported.
If that's true, it defeats the purpose of a PVR. I still have the old SA8300HD PVR and use it that way all the time. I literally never watch anything live.
Godsmo, I may be misunderstanding what you are attempting to do or how you are doing it but I know you can definitely start to watch a program while it is still recording. I just checked to confirm.
If you go to the recording list, the program(s) being recorded will have a red dot at the bottom of their box. If you click on that box it will come up with the option to Watch or Delete. Selecting Watch starts the recording from the start.
