    No. It makes no difference what the recorder is. Normal Sky Digital only has one channel at once. So unless you have another LNB/box etc you are stuck with one channel at once.

    p.s Welcome to the forums :thumbsup:

    Not if you only have Sky digital.
    The reason you can record one prog and view another on Sky+ is because it has two tuners.

    You can watch a different channel in another room but not in the room that you're recording in.
