I'm also considering FIOS to replace Dish. With Dish I am currently limited to 3 tuners total (I have 1Hopper/2Joey config) and it's not working too well for me. Kids and I are always recording something while watching something else, wife wants to watch her own stuff… I would need probably 6 tuners to keep everyone happy.
Besides, with triple play the monthly savings would be worthwhile.
My understanding is that if I get 1 DVR with "whole home DVR" capability and 2 satellites I will be able to use a total of six tuners from any of my 3 TVs, correct?
Or should it be 3 different DVRs as long as the can talk to each other?
Please someone clarify this for me and/or suggest the appropriate configuration for 3 TVs (all HD).
