    As it says, if I had a dvd recorder with a Hard Drive,
    can I record a different program on the HD at the
    same time I record onto DVD?

    Nice feature if this is possible?

    No, but you can play back another recording already there, a dvd in the drive, or start watching the recording before it has finished.

    Thought as much, its just that there is three things I want to
    watch at the same time (Don't even ask what they are).
    Its a bit silly, cos I'm sure all the technology is already there.
    Just a little extra software.

    Thats why I also still have a vcr under the tv for very occasional use, and If I get really desperate another 2 old machines in kids bedrooms as a last resort.

    Bad as they are, they are better than most programs transmitted.
