We use Freeview on a Samsung Smart TV and all works well, except that when we are watching TV it will switch to a channel that is about to start recording. Does Freeview on a Smart TV allow you to record one channel and watch another? Or are we somehow limited to view the program being recorded?

Hope someone can clarify.

Thanks

You can only record broadcast TV on more than one channel if you have more than one tuner in the TV or device that does the recording. I assume that like most TVs yours only has one tuner.

Thank you for your answer.

It is not so much that we want to record more than one channel, we don't, but when we are watching a TV channel and recording starts (on a different one) we are suddenly transported to the reading channel with no option to change.

Obviously a limitation with current TVs so we'll have to put up with it.

Thanks again

There are devices that will allow multiple channel watching/recording but they appear to be for satellite reception only. https://www.dishtv.co.nz/index.php?route=product/category&path=... If you have a smart TV you should be able to watch live TV by using the streaming options in either TVNZ+ or TV3NOW. These are apps that should be installed, or can be installed on your TV.  The other way to do this is not to record he programme but watch it "on demand" using the same apps. You will need the Internet and you TV must be connected to it.

Something is wrong with it, take it back
Or have you tried doing a factory reset?
