Newbie here!

Hope I put this in the correct place, I couldn't find anything in the fact section. I just installed and set up my off air antenna. I thought the manual states that with it in use that you can potentially record/watch 3 programs at once. I can't; is there a setting I am missing?

Don't believe everything you read in the manual.
There are two SAT tuners & two OTA tuners and you can only record from two period.
You can watch a recorded program while the two tuners are recording, but that's it. :)

Mine only has 1 OTA input. I was under the impression there were only two total tuners for the three inputs. Is this not correct?

The one OTA input is split internally for two OTA tuners.

But are they not the same two tuners that for the Sat inputs? In other words, the the one OTA input is split to the two internal Sat Tuners. That's the way I understood it. Otherwise it sounds like 4 tuners.

It is 4 tuners:

2 Sat tuners via 2 Sat cables
2 OTA tuners via 1 OTA cable

There are plans for multiple tuners from 1 cable using a technology called FTM. Some time in the future. No dates have been announced.
