Congratulations to the team on a great First Look and follow up info.
I have my own questions from the first look page 5:
-Can't take a foreground tuner from another client but can take a background tuner that is being used for double play. Ques: What happens if anything when the HR34 user swaps the double play tuners, anything?
-For live tv, you can tie up all 3 tuners with any 3 clients. leaving one client (even the HR34) with only being able to view previously recorded content. Ques: This seems to indicate that with 3 clients, the HR34 viewer cannot watch live TV? What does the HR34 viewer see when trying to tune a live channel? And can the HR34 still record 2 other channels thereby putting 5 tuners to use?
1. If the HR34 has a background tuner taken for double play by another client and you try and flip back with the HR34 the HR34 acts as though you don't have double play active and asks you if you want to start double play. If you say yes, it pops up the conflict screen and let's you choose which tuner to steal from another clients background tuner, or possibly cancel a recording depending on how the other tuners are tied up at that point.
2. No, what was indicated was If all 5 tuners are taken up by other clients (two of them could/would be tied up by actively using double play on two of the clients), then there is no live tuner immediately available for the hr34. So then if you try and tune to a live channel on the hr34 in that scenario you get a conflict screen asking which background tuner you want to take, or you can go to the playlist and view something that has been recorded.
You can watch a channel being recorded from any one client at a time. But no two clients can use the same tuner at the same time regardless if that tuner is recording or not as well.
