If these units are like the joey units, or rvu clients, does it mean they don't tie up a swim channel? I guess my real question is if you could have these in use and exceed the tuner count for a swim setup. For example, could a swm 8 have 3 h2x's, HMC, and say 4 or so c31's? I know the cinema kits don't use up a tuner like a receiver so im curious if these do. I would assume it would be possible since you can have up to 6 rvu clients on an hr34. I guess I don't know if a swm 16 is required for a setup like that tho.
With a HR34 and 3 H2x's you would only need a SWM8. Adding on the C31's, as I understand it, would still keep you at a SWM8. The SWM8 is limited to 8 tuners. The C31's, being RVU clients, do not have tuners so they shouldn't count against the tuner limit for the SWM8.
