I'm not sure if you understand what whole house dvr service is. So whole house DVR are multiple DVR boxes.

Really I think what you need to decide first is if you want multiple dvrs to you can record shows for multiple tvs.

WH DVRs typically hold more and are newer.

Also if you get whole house DVR service, the two can share recordings.

You can get two DVR or 1 DVR w 1/"slave".

Actual DVR can pause live TV, however the "slave" unit cannot.
