New to DTV, I connected an AM21 module to our HR24 DVR, hoping to be able to record 3 programs like we did with our Dish 622 DVR. No luck, it would only recognize 2 sources at a time. Am I missing something or is DTV just behind the curve...........ATT Uverse claims to be able to do 4 at once (althought I have never verified that). I will say that the AM21 is a MUCH better tuner than we had in the Dish 622 box.

None of the Directv DVRs will record more than 2 programs at the same time (any combination of satellite and OTA).

BAHAHA D* behind the curve of Uverse?! Hilarious! :lol: :rolling: :lol:

Anyway, yeah, you only get two at once. It would be sweet if you got all 4 though, that would push me out of my chair to put up an antenna if you could!

Uverse is sneaky, in most of their locations, you can record up to 2 HD and maybe 1 or 2 more SD streams simultaneously, their delivery system depends on bandwidth to your house, D*'s system is only limited by the number of DVR's and cabling with a live sat signal on it...2 shows simultaneously per DVR times however many dvr's you want to have hooked up.
