Watch a dvd while recording to HDD


Standard Member
Is it possible to watch a dvd at the same time as recording to the HDD. The recorders i'm considering are the
Sony 890 or 995 and the Pioneer 560hx. I've tried looking through these forums but unable to find a suitble answer.


yes it is , providing its a pal dvd and not an import

so for the uk a uk region 2 dvd will play no problem whilst the recorder is recording a pal uk tv broadcast
