I used to use a starview box which has 3 outputs on the back. I was able to watch one of the many channels on the box and at the same time come of of the box into the terrestrial ariel and record teresstrial channels. Now I have a dreambox which only has the input and the output. I cannot now watch a teresstrial channel and record from the drambox or visa versa due to insufficient number of output ports. Is there any way of watching and recording different channels at the same time.

I have not set up the recording to the hard drive yet but wouldnt have thought that this would mak any difference.
Not sure if this is what you are after, but you can use the coaxial out to connect to your TV direct. On mine this means I get about 16 channels on teh TV - including e4, CNN anc bbcs regardless of what the dreambox is doing. It basically means my wife can watch coronation street while I muck about!
