Recording on one channel while watching another

Can someone please tell me how to record a program on one channel while watching another program on another channel? I have a Panasonic DVD/VHS recorder with a digital tuner. A reply will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Sugzze

Welcome to the Forum.

DVDR's only have one tuner so it is impossible to watch another channel simultaneously.[ Except what your TV can provide. ]


To do that under any circumstances requires two tuners somewhere in you system.
Your DVDR has one tuner only so you cannot use that.
However your TV also has a tuner and you can watch whatever that tuner can receive.
I presume it does not have a digital tuner

If you wish to be able to watch another digital channel whilst recording, you require another tuner source.

Digital Freeview STB's can be obtained reasonably cheaply, but if you can stretch to more, then get a PVR which may include another two digital tuners.
