Sorry if these questions are dumb. I don not understand what is happening and if there is something wrong.
1. My foxsat was just now recording two different channels quite happily. For info the two cables from the satellite are connected to the two outside connectors - nothing is connected to the middle one. When I last looked at the channel strength indicators, they both showed as connected and with good signals for both quality and strength, 100% and 90%.
Whilst the two programmes are being recorded I was under the impression that I could watch another, different channel/programme.
My TV does not have it's own freesat tuner. There is no analogue aerial connected to the TV either.
2. The second issue is that whilst there is even one programme being recorded, certain menu items are greyed out and inaccessible.
Can you please help me shed light on these two things. Is this normal behaviour? For instance if I had a third freesat tuner in the TV is that the feed that would allow me to watch a different channel to the other two being recorded? Do I just not have enough feeds? I suspect this must be the answer because as soon as one of the programmes stopped recording, I could again change to any channel freely rather than just a restricted set of channels. May need a new TV!
Thanks in advance for any help.
