MTS TV: Watching recordings question

Can you watch multiple recordings on different tvs at the sametime? Or one recording on one tv and the others have to watch live tv?

Yes you can watch multiple recordings on differnet TV's all at once.

If you had 6 settopboxes in your home you could have 2 watching live HD, 1 watching live SD, and 3 watching HD recorded programs all at the same time.

The recordings when played back do not take up a stream I take then?

The only things that take a stream are things that are being sent to your home, such as a live channel you are watching or a channel that you are recording.

A program that has previously been recorded is stored on the hard drive on the VIP1216 STB. When you are watching the recorded program, it is being sent from the hard drive to the attached TV or to another STB in your house using your in-house cable.

Can two people watch a recorded show at the same time...on separate tv's...at different time intervals?

In other words... am watching a recorded movie downstairs and I'm 45 minutes into it...and my son wants to start watching it right now upstairs...is this possible?

So he can watch the movie from the beginning and I can continue watching from the halfway point...that's outstanding...
