I have the new HR34 Genie 5-tuner whole-house DVR system.
In addition to the main HR34 unit, I have 4 of the C31 clients, and two stand-alone non-DVR HD boxes for a total of 7 TV's.
The client units work off the HR34 and utilize its' tuners, and as such - there are limitations.
If you are recording something, and watching something else on the HR34 - there's two tuners being used. If someone is watching TV using one of the C31 clients, each of those uses a tuner.
In my situation, we've never had any issues. I have 7 TV's in the house. But, 4 of them are in bedrooms. One of my bedrooms doesn't have a TV (but it's wired and I can move a box and TV in there if need be). There is a TV in my living room, one in the family room, and one outside on the lanai. With only 4-people in the house and having two of the stand-alone boxes (with their own tuners), I don't expect to have any problems and have no complaints so far.
