Re: Tuners

Most cable and FiOS dvrs still come with only two, not sure what your so indignant about it only having 3. I only have two in my FiOS dvr, I'd love 3 I think that would solve 99% of my conflicts.

Most cable/FIOS DVRs are only connected to (1) TV. In that setup, it's fine - you can watch one program while something else records.

The Dish DVR being discussed is a "whole-home-DVR". The main unit has (3) tuners and can feed up to (4) client units, so up to (5) TVs total. Each TV would be restricted in being able to watch (5) different, LIVE channels.
