And it is up against LOST!

Nope. I can't watch one and record another, either. I'm going to watch the first half of AR, ask my MIL to tape the last half (and keep my fingers crossed she does it right!) then watch Lost and watch the last half of AR during the day on Thursday. I'll have DH set up the VCR for MIL so she won't have to do anything except watch AR which I know she'll be doing. But I'll still keep my fingers crossed!!

If you have an older style Dish DVR (known as the 510), you can only watch/record one program at a time. However, they are now offering dual tuner DVR's for lease. If you're unsure which DVR you have, give Dish a call and ask them to check your acct to see if you have the 510 (older) or 625 (dual). If you have the dual tuner, you can watch one show and record another.

I'm guessing the 510...wonder what an upgrade would cost...not that it really matters but one day a year!

Thanks for the info, Brandee. We do have Dish Network so I'll find out what type we have and see if we can upgrade. It becomes an issue with us with some frequency because DH's soccer games sometimes clash with my shows. We also only have one television so there's no other option but for someone to give up their choice!
