    Hi,

    After some work, I've got my Shuttle XPC wired up and looking / sounding sweet...

    I have a DVCII capture card, which is now capturing from my sky box and using PVR+ & Digiguide, I can schedule Sky recordings with the click of a button.

    Was I foolish to think that I could record one channel on my PC while watching another on my TV or am I missing something (else)?

    There are no SKY STB's that can output two seperate channels at the same time.
    If watching two channels at the same time is important then you need two digiboxes, a "cheap" second subscription can be had for £10 (SKY+ users) or £15 for everyone else.

    That aside I assume you can record the digibox output while streaming a previous recording from the XPC to the TV so at least it's better than a VCR :)
