I have also been considering this machine but cannot yet speak with experience. However, the answer to your question is no, as both those channels are digital and the machine has only one digital tuner. You could only record the channel you are watching. There is, though, an analogue tuner as well so if one of the two was analogue you could record the other. (either record the analogue or the digital one). I have been told that if your tv has a digital (freeview channel) though, or if you use a freeview digibox then you can do what you asked.
