    Is it possible?

    I've look through Elgato's line up but it seems like none of their offerings include a dual tuner, and yet I've heard about how a MR member managed to get 2 separate tuners working on his mac..

    Darn, the one thing I really miss from my PC is the dual tuner :eek:

    It is possible to watch & record more than one channel at the same time but only if the channels reside on the same multiplex, since there is only one tuner. If you don't know which MUX a channel is on then just go to the channels line-up view and sort by frequency (i.e. channels broadcasting on the same frequency = same MUX). You can't schedule multiple recordings but you can record manually by opening a new live TV window from the menu.

    e.g. in the UK you can record programmes on BBC1, 2 & 3 (but not 4) at the same time, or ITV1, ITV2, Channel 4, E4 & More4, etc.
