You CAN watch and record at the same time m8, you can also record one channel and switch to another channel as long as the other channel is on the same transponder as the channel you're recording from.

You can also timeshift the channel your recording at the same time you're recording it.

Example you're recording eastenders or something - you start watching it and press the record button. at this point the program starts writing to the hard drive, you can then pause,rewind or fast forward(upto the point you have recorded). You can also switch channels (on the same transponder) and eastenders will still be recording.

how do you know if it is on the same transponder? I thought you needed two tuners in order to be able to do this.

On most images, the channels that are not on the active transponder will be removed from the channel selection, when a recording is started. You don't need two tuners, as the tuner has access to the entire transponder, which will typically give you 6-10 channels, give or take.

i use pli iolite and find it excelent.
you can download it from their website here
I use this image but it wont let you pause live tv i.e press video button and press pause, hope this helps when installing your image, the best thing this image offers to me is the 14 day epg plugin. which you will find in the sat forum. epg in my area is crap and it pisses her off when she wants to record stuff.

you can but its long winded when you want to.
heres how i get around it

start recording the channel you are watching
then go to file mode and start playing what you are recording,
now you can hit the pause button and pause it, rewind or fast forward as much as you have recorded.

if you press OK while on the channel you are recording it will bring up all channels on that transponder
