What could work is if you used a Joey, you could record off the main box (or presumably the Joey) while watching TV on the other.
Thanks very much for this helpful suggestion, which sounds like an excellent solution. While the Joey, I think, only has HDMI and composite video out, but not component out (so could not be used for HD video recording with the HD PVR), yet since it does have HDMI output, it sounds like I could connect from the Joey to my (primary) tv by HDMI cable, and from the Hopper to my HD PVR by component cable.
In this scenario, both the Hopper box and this Joey box would be located in my desk/entertainment center, adjacent to one another, being adjacent as well both to my main tv, and, my computer/HD PVR.
I would then also have an additional
Joey box located in the bedroom of our rv, which would be used simply to provide tv service only (by hdmi) to the tv in that location.
Does it seem that I understand things correctly here, as rehearsed above, and by these means should I indeed be able, simultaneously, both to view (on tv) and HD PVR-record programming from these Dish network devices (namely, the Hopper, and Joey)?
