Do you mean that you can only view a limited range of channel live when a recording is in progress, or that you can record only from some channels?
I suggest you give actual examples, so the channels can be related to satellite transponders (each of which functions like a terrestrial MUX.

How many cables do you have connected 1 or 2.

If 2 are they connected to the two outer connections with nothing on the middle one ?

If 1 is there a short loop cable from tuner 1 out to tuner 2 in ?

What does Menu System Diagnostics say signal strength and quality is for tuner 1 and tuner 2 ?

I can probably help if you answer the questions in my post regarding the number of cables you have.

If you have two cables properly connected there should be no restrictions on second recordings, only on which 3rd channels you can view.

If you have one cable and the loop cable as specified, recording channel 4 (SD) you should have access to any of the following

I have two cables checked by an engineer who also fitted a new LNB box as i kept losing signal

What signal strength/quality do both tuners indicate using Menu System Diagnostics ?
Are they connected to the two outer connections on the back of the box with nothing on the middle connection ?
