Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Can you please remove the power to the recorder (so unplug it from the power socket).
Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the unit, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.
Let me know the results please
What happens when you try to switch to another program?
I just checked and this is normal, when recording two channels you can only switch between the two, as it only has two tuners.
You can see this page 27 of the manual here
You can switch when recording one, but not two.
ok, but it only has two tuners, and you can also see in the specifications I provided it only allows for 2 recordings, then you cannot switch to a third station...
Possibly your thinking about another recorder or watching direct on the TV's connection, not the recorder.
But I will mark this question to remain open so at any time if you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service for now by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
