    Ok, I'm slightly confused about the capabilities. Some posts / sites on the web I'm seeing that I can only record 2 shows at once (watch a 3rd) and stream to 3 clients. Other posts I'm seeing say I can record 5 shows off the sat / ota at once. Which one is correct?

    the Genies can indeed record up to 5 shows at once, regardless if from satellite or OTA via the AM21 OTA module. but if you have clients they will take a tuner when the clients are watching live TV. so if you just have the Genie, all tuners are yours for the taking

    Those sites may be referring to Cinema Plus capability, over the internet. Based on past posts on the DirecTV tech forums..since internet access does not require a tuner, the Genie has a "6th" viewing experience (please correct this information if wrong). Aside from that, you're limited to 5 tuners = 5 live OR 5 recorded OR some mix (with a limit of streaming 3).

    the "6th" tuner is known as a "network tuner"
