Record 6 DVR Simultaneous Recording
I have the Contour record 6 Cisco Explorer 9865HDC DVR and three client boxes, I believe they are Pace XiD HD models.
The problem is, each client box uses one of the tuners on the record 6 DVR, no matter if the client box is actively viewing content or not.
This means that if three shows are simultaneously recording on the DVR, you can not watch live TV using the record 6 DVR. The system prompts you to disable one of the currently recording programs in order to view live TV.
On the previous Contour system there was a menu option to disable buffering on the client boxes, which freed up the tuner. On the new Contour system, I can not find this setting.
Is there a fix for this annoying problem?
