Change channels while recording.. then go back

Is there a way, while watching/recording a live game, to change to another channel or recorded show and then come back to the game right where I left off?

I have Genie HR34-700

Re: Change channels while recording.. then go back

Press Pause. Then push the down arrow (around the Select button) and tune to the channel you want. When you want to go back, press the down arrow again and you'll go back to the paused recording. Using the down arrow like this starts what is known as double play - and you can toggle back and forth between the two shows by pressing the down arrow.

Better yet, with the HR34 you can use PIP.
