does anybody know how to record two things at once and watch something else at the same time with the dsr6000?

If you have cable, or output a vcr, or some other type of video source with coax output, then you can set the Tivo to "Standby mode" and the coax will "feed through" your Tivo to your tv set. So if you usually watch Tivo via the coax connection, you could watch a 3rd source in this manner. If you use S-Video or Composite cables as your only video output from the Tivo, then it won't work.

The other option is that you Watch Something in "now playing" while you record 2 other shows. Technically, this is "Recording 2 things, while watching another".

Do you have both tuners enabled, and two cables from the dish down to the DSR?

Messages & Setup/Receiver & Phone Setup/Satellite Dish Setup.

Of course this is only going to work if you've updated to the 2.5 software one way or the other.
