    I know I should know this but it's not covered in the manual. Can anyone advise how to record two programmes simultaneously. Does this also mean I can watch a third? Can they ALL be off the freeview channels (itv2, bbc3,4 etc?)

    thanks for any help

    I don't know as I don't own one but why don't you just try scheduling the recording of two programs that are on at the same time?

    Set one up to record using the normal method and then do the same thing again for the second program.

    Tried that Dave but it doesn't allow you to do it. I also tried to record one on a timer and start another once that'd started. I've now tracked down a number for a guy in Sagem UK who knows about this stuff (allegedly), I'll give him a go and if it doesn't do as it says on the box then I'll be complaining to the relevent people.

    Regards

    BW you're absolutely correct. YOU CAN'T. I've complained to Sagem about this as the wording on their box is misleading, I've also complained to Argos (whom I believe are the only supplier of this particular model) as their catalogue is also misleading and I've mentioned it to the trading standards people who are now investigating it.

    I'll just return this unit and get a Humax 9200 when it becomes available.

    Regards

    Rich
