Is it possible to hook up a Comcast DVR to a DVD/VHS recorder to an HDTV so that the DVR can record one cable channel while the DVD recorder is recording a different cable channel using ity's own tuner? Here's what I've tried:
I am able to watch cable tv using the tuner from the dvd/vhs, or by using the dvr by switching the input on my hdtv. Also, I can record different channels at the same time on the dvd/vhs and the dvr. ON DEMAND WILL NOT WORK USING THIS SET UP.
ON DEMAND now works but the tuner on the dvd/vhs no longer works independently. I have to set the tuner on the dvd/vhs to channel 3 and use the Comcast dvr to select my channels. I can longer record different channels at the same time since both the dvr and the dvd/vhs have to use the same tuner (dvr).
I realize a splitter should do the trick but I am concerned my signal strength will suffer. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
