The whole purpose of having a DVR is to record programs while you are away or to record a program while you watch another. With Dish Network you cannot view any other channel while recording. I called Dish Network support and they told me to record on second TV. That's OK as long as someone else is not watching another program on the second TV.
With today's technology I find this hard to believe that a major supplier of TV programming is not capable of doing this. I just changed over from cable and never imagined Dish Network was so out of date technologically speaking. You can rest assured I will inform any and all friends, family, co-workers and anyone who will listen not to purchase Dish Network.
Very Dissatisfied Customer.
