    I am here! :D But the doors are closed and my bag is still in transit, silly weather delaying planes and stuff. Wow, I will have my camera in tow, more of a mental notebook, I need to be free. :D Three tuners eh? Humm, I need to slingbox into mine and see what is up. I don't know if the download happened or not, but I will find out when I check shortly (at least the HR24-500.

    I wonder if they will let us take a look at the backs of these? :scratchin

    When we first received these, I noticed the SWM screen showing channels at 0, what was odd was how many, it didn't seem right. However, I just slingged into my HR24-500 and the Info Screen on shows 2 tuners, under Features. :scratchin

    When looking through the Diagnostics, there are two tests that involved the tuners.

    The LNB Power Test and the Satellite Tuner Test.

    The LNB Power Test allows testing of Sat Tuner 1 and Sat Tuner 2.

    The Satellite Tuner Test allows testing of Sat Tuner 1, Sat Tuner 2, and Sat Tuner NET.

    If I heard him right, I think he was talking about outbound streams from the dvr being 3, not sat feeds it can record at one time.... so 4 with whatever your watching on the actual dvr too, and a total of 8 clients can connect to the dvr..

    And did you notice the interface? Its old.. Still has tabs...

    Sorry man, probably shouldn't have posted, forget about your avatar. SOJ dead hopefully.

    That article seems pretty clear ... "we were told it would be more than two tuners" ... cool.
