I could swear I saw a post on the forum here (but I cannot find it) about a new HR34 only enabling two tuners when installed, and something be required to 'unlock' the other three tuners.

My HR34 was installed yesterday and shows all five tuners with signals in the "Test Signal Strength" screen, but I want to be sure it will actually be able to use more than two to record programs (as it just replaced a four-tuner Tivo/cable setup).

Is this still necessary?


All of mine record 5 out of the box. Nothing extra was necessary.

Is the HR34 faster than the HR24 ? I don't honestly need 4 tuners. But I would pay extra for a faster box.

It has a faster processor, and is faster until it is recording 4 or 5 shows then it does slow down pretty drastically.

I'm not sure why the average person needs more than one coupled with some hrs.


I would like a second one for redundancy. Before, my recordings were split between 2 DVR's, so if one failed, I only had to find a way to get back half my stuff. If my 34 fails, I would lose it all.

So my plan is to have a second 34 to duplicate recordings from the other one. Just for backup. :)

Now that HR34s are out in the wild, I'm going to close this thread and open a new discussion thread.
