I currently have two HR24's, one in the living room, one in the bedroom, and the bedroom one feeds an old SD TV, nothing special. I'd like to upgrade to the HR34, simply because it can record more than two shows at a time. The csr on the phone said it can control up to 4 tv's, I think is what she said. So, would it be hardwired to all 4 tv's or? The reason I ask is, I don't necessarily need it to control the bedroom tv. We actually split that off, and it's used more in the kitchen for a little tv on the counter. So, I'd actually like to leave the HR24 in the bedroom, doing what it does, and just have the HR34 in the living room. Can it be done that way? Right now I have a SL3 lnb, a two way splitter, one cable going to the power inserter/bedroom HR24, the other going to the living room HR24, and the cables go through the attic, and in the walls, so could all that be kept in place, and just upgrade to the HR34? I hope what I'm asking made sense. Oh......do they charge more for the DVR service with the HR34? Thanks!
