So I know there are a bunch of threads on the HR34, but none of them seem to tell me what I need to know. Maybe they do if I read all of them from start to finish, but that is several hundred pages and I don't have time for that. What I am wondering is: 1: Dot you need some kind of converter or adapter or something to make your TV compatible with the HR34? If so, what is it called and how much is it? My TVs are connected via HDMI right now. I'm assuming this will have to change with the HR34? 2: Also, what type of cable is used to carry the signal from the HR34 to the converter/adapter box at the tv? 3: In addition to that, what is the box called that lets you view over the air broadcasts and how much does that thing cost? 4: This HR34 records 5 different channels at the same time, is that correct? And does this mean I can watch 5 different channels at the same time (if I have 5 separate TVs connected to it)? 5: Is it possible to have a few HR34 units stacked on top of each other in a closet with cables run to the TVs (or the adapter boxes, which would sit right next to the TVs) and the remotes still work? 6: If it is possible to do this, would the box that allows for local channels sit in the closet with the HR34 or would it go next to the TV? 7: How many simultaneous over the air channels can you view simultaneously if you have whatever box enables the over the air connected to the HR34? And can these over the air channels be watched on different TVs simultaneously (different channels)? And how many over the air channels can it record at the same time? And if you are recording/watching over the air channels, does that reduce the total number of channels that can be recorded/watched if they were all satellite broadcasts? I'm going to be moving soon and when I do I want to upgrade to the HR34. When I call to place the order I want to tell the rep exactly what I need so I don't have to worry about any future issues. The answers to these questions should allow me to figure out what exactly I need. Thanks in advance.
