Hi

I have standard Sky digital with a Pace digibox.

I can only record the programme that I am watching which isn't a lot of fun when my wife wants me to record dancing on ice while shes at work.

Is there anyway round this. I'm probably just being a bit dense but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Does your box have 2 tuners?

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

It would be a Sky+ box with two inputs from either a twin or quad lnb

you could always get a free view box, then use that to record her ice prog. you will only be able to record free to air stuff then, while u watch what ever you want on the sky box.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Unless you also have a terrestrial aerial and tuner that can receive the channel,

Leave the receiver on the correct channel and hit 'record' on the remote. Do not change channel during recording.
Who knows, you may get to enjoy the programme :p

I don't have a terrestrial aerial so a freeviewbox is not an option.

Is there such a thing as a dual tuner box that even a complete novice like me could use?
