Shaw DSR 600 question.

Am getting our Shaw LTSS system hooked up shortly. They sent a DSR 600 receiver (in an HD 600 box ) and am wondering if , with this thing , we can watch one channel and record another onto our VHS/DVD R/W unit.

With a single tuner box (600 and 605) you can only watch one channel at a time. Currently there are rumours that the pvr capability will be added to the 605, but when is anybody's guess.

The 630 is dual tuner pvr. You can record two channels while watching a third from the HDD.

You are limited to watching and externally recording that smae channel.

The 600/605 is single tuner, so if/when DVR is enabled on it, it will still be single tuner.

You can still tune the antenna channels with the VCR tuner or a converter box, whatever is appropriate for you

Also you seem surprised they sent the receiver in an HD600 box. The DSR600 is in fact an HD receiver. Unless I'm missing something here?
