watch one Digital TV channel while recording another.)
If you have an outside TV aerial connected, you can watch the terrestrial
channels (BBC1, BBC2, ITV 1, Channel 4 and Channel 5) directly through your TV
while recording a Broadband Digital TV channel. Or, if you have connected your
aerial to your VCR, you can record the terrestrial channels while watching
Broadband Digital TV.
