    Just curious with the HR10-250 having (2) satellite tuners and (2) OTA tuners, how many things can I watch / record at the same time? Can I record (2) shows from satellite while wathing OTA? Or can I record (1) show from satellite (1) show from OTA and watch a seperate satellite feed?

    Just 2.

    2 OTA

    2 Satellite

    1 OTA 1 Satellite.

    There are only 2 buffers to record/watch live programs so 2 is the magic number.

    There are 2 tuners. You can record 2 shows at the same time regarless of source or watch a show while another is recording or record 2 shows at the time while wacthing something you have already recorded.

    you can record exactly 2 things at once in any combination of OTA/satellite. you can view either of the programs being recorded, or you can view a prerecorded program while 2 things are being recorded.

    If you only have one Sat input the magic number would be 1...

    Not true. There are four tuners total in the HR10-250 but only two of them can be used at any given time. You can record two live shows at once while watching a third prerecorded show from the hard drive, just like any other DTivo model. Thde only difference is that you have a choice of watching or recording either DTV or OTA broadcasts.
