Submission + - Can I record one channel while watching a different one using Videotron cable?

Tolkien writes: I've been thinking of building a PVR for a long while now but haven't begun because I'm stuck on one question.

The current situation is that I can't record one channel while watching another like I could with my old VCR years ago. I want this to be possible again without having to pay for two cable subscriptions, so given a standard cable box as source provided by Videotron (in Quebec, Canada), can I make this happen using a custom-built PVR? How can I go about doing that?

I'd love any tips or information this great community could provide, thanks!
