They should all be able to see every "box".

Not sure on PP coverage as I don't have it. People usually negotiate with the CSRs to get the best price.

the RVU TV will be able to see all playlist in your WHDVR network.  of course you will need the WHDVR service which has a fee of $3.00 a month

Thanks; I do have WHDVR service on the account now, so I should be all set.


The latest complication is that in order to phase out the recordings backlogged on one of the HR24s, I was thinking about keeping both and replacing the H24 with the Genie, but that puts me at 9 tuners on my SWiM splitter (2xHr24 + 1xGenie).  I have 3 spare  cables up to the dish (from the pre-SWiM LNB), so could upgrade to SWiM16, but since this is theoretically a temporary situation, I'd just as soon stick with the existing setup.  Is it possible to configure an HR24 to only use a single tuner?   I'm away from home right now, so I can't check the setup options.

Yes, an HR24 can be configured for single tuner mode.
