Single Input

I am thinking of purchasing a DSR 530 for my star choice satellite system. Until I do my home renovations, I only have a single cable coming from my dish that is hooked up to my current receiver. My question is, will the DSR 530 function with only one cable hooked up to it, or does it actually require two?

Thanks

Dan

If you plug in just one cable, it will function as a standard HD receiver. The second cable allows you to record.

So, when hooked up to a single cable ,even if you have the receiver on the channel that you want to record you still need to have the second cable hooked up to be able to record? I realize this means that you have to be watching what you are recording, but I was wondering if it could be done.

Nope -- to use recording, you must have a cable plugged into tuner 2.
