Back on topic: I just had a 2 Hopper/4 Joey install done last week. I was considering a 2 Hopper/5 Joey configuration, but would have had to buy the 5th Joey for $125. I opted to not go that route, because the fifth Joey would have been used infrequently.
So, yes, you can now have 3 Joeys on a Hopper. This has been true for a few months now with recent firmware upgrade.

So can the hopper stream 3 sessions as well as use a tuner or watch recorded content? Essentially can you use a hopper and 3 joeys while having all 4 rooms active with live or recorded programming as tuners permit?

If all four are watching live, two could be viewing the same program unless PTAT is recording in which case all four can be watching a live program but two would need to be on a Big Four local network. If you throw in recordings and streaming, it just opens what can be viewed

Thanks I wasn't aware that it would stream 3 and display one as well for a 4 room system.

Note that I edited my post to be clearer.
