I'll soon start construction on a new home and will have at least 8 TVs (might be a couple more seldom used TVs). I would like the vast majority of them, at least 7, to be able to share the same recordings. In my current house, I have six DVR's all with external hard drives (most are 1.5 TB) and connected with whole home viewing. So, even if I could have 8 TVs connected to one HR34/Genie using the small set top box devices (have read conflicting reports about whether you can have four or eight of these), I don't think one HR34 would cut it in terms of tuners. So, what is my best option for hooking DirecTV up to 8 TVs. It should be noted that rarely will more than five TVs be in use at a time, and I am considering getting an HDbaseT matrix switcher, so one option is to get 5 or 6 DVRs and using the Matrix to allow any TV to watch any DVR. Anyway, I would appreciate any thoughts on the best way to have 8 TVs able to watch/share recordings, but only needing to have 5 TVs actively watching content at any given time.
