SONY RDR-HXD860 won't play DVD while recording

If I try to play a DVD while a recording to HDR is going on, it says "Operation not possible while recording".
I think this should be possible. It's certainly possible to play from the HDD while its recording.
Anyone else seen this?

Does this happen with all DVDs? Seem to recall you couldn't play back NTSC DVDs whilst recording but PAL ones worked fine.

Well spotted - it is an NTSC one. Thanks.
Do you know about another problem with the machine? Sometimes a timer recording (using the EPG) continues recording after the program has ended, sometimes for several hours. Wastes a lot of HDD space.
Thanks Again.

I don't I'm afraid. I haven't used mine for a while but I don't remember ever having that problem.

There is, however, a thread on here regarding a similar issue with the RDR-HXD560, which I think was essentially the same machine but with a smaller hard drive: Sony RDR-HXD560 record past EPG stop time
