Yes, it can. When you insert disk, you will see a loading line. For a store purchased disk, simply press play when loaded. For disks you may have made on another recorder (if they're finalized), with single or multiple movies, press up or down to choose the movie you want to watch. Or start from the first and it will play all movies.
Hope this helps.

Yes it does but I've never used that feature. But since all of the features that I have used seem fairly easy, I would imagine the timer record couldn't be very difficult either.

If I understand correctly, the first room is connected to the demodulated output of the receiver and the second room is connected to the network by splitter with no receiver demodulator in the second room. This will work as long as long as your tuner in the second room can receive the channels you want off the network.

This unit does not have an RF tuner. Recording is from Line in. You would connect this to your DISH S-video or Video output and Audio L/R outputs just like connecting to TV, As long as DISH box puts same signal out on two different outputs.

Call the online help phone number located on the device's box flaps, it should be a 800 (toll free number).
If you damaged the device, you are out
alot of money. It took me all night to figure out my hook up, but my situation
was very different from the standard-TV
hook-up. Try switching your out plug cables with your in plug cables. That may be your problem. That was one solution I found after staying up all night getting the thing hooked-up.
Call company first before proceeding!

Check the remote for the TV. It probably has a video input button. You will need to change the remote to video 1 or 2, depending on what connection you made to the TV.

Yes you may watch the program as it is recorded. It has antennae, and/or dish/cable inputs. Now, you can either connect it direct to the signal device or use a splitter to connect in parallel with your TV.
