If you have a genie with 3 mini's and all 4 stb's are watching live tv at the same time, can you still record 5 things at once with the extra available 5th tuner?

Or ,are you just limited to just one recording?

Forgive my ignorance if its a redundant question.Its just the way D* marketed on their website.

No.  Each mini uses a tuner from the Genie so if you have 3 mini's watching TV you're using 3 of the 5 tuners and watching tv on the Genie itself takes up tuner 4.  You'd be left with the ability to only record 1 thing.  If a second thing started to record you'd get an onscreen prompt asking if you wanted to change the channel to record or cancel your recording.

Of course you can record the 4 things being watched currently plus a different one using the fifth tuner.

Or, my preference: Record four new things and watch five previously recorded items.
