Our new set-up included 2 hoppers and 2 joeys. If both hoppers are set to record the prime-time line-up (since hopper sharing isn't a current feature yet), how many other live shows can be watched at the same time?

Is it possible during primetime recording for 1 of the hoppers and 2 joeys to each watch their own live show? Could the 2nd hopper also watch a 4th live event? I understand each hopper has 3 tuners and if 1 tuner is recording prime time 1 tuner should be able to feed a live show on the hopper and another tuner feed a joey?

If both Hoppers are recording PTA then you have two tuners on each Hopper available for the two Joeys. So yes to everything.

Also worth mentioning... depending on how you are configured, even though the Hoppers cannot see each other yet, the Joeys may be able to connect to either Hopper... which means there may be no reason to run PrimeTime Anytime on both Hoppers UNLESS you need/want to be able to watch those recordings at the location where the other Hopper is installed.
