I should hopefully I should be able to just add the HR34 in the system and disable the extra tuners on the HR units as I'm adding the HR34 as a 4th receiver.
What do you mean by "disable the extra tuners on the HR units"?
From the 2 DVRs and receiver you're showing in your signature line plus the HR34, I count 10 tuners. Do you have a SWiM16 right now or do you plan on deactivating (and returning) at least one of your HR units?

I've got 5 tuners running now over two HR and one H. The plan was to disable one tuner on each of the existing HR and then insert the HR34 giving 8 tuners.
So by disable, you meant you would go under setup and change your two HRs from dual to single tuners? Interesting idea. Does anyone know if this would work?

Yes that will work.
Again, interesting idea. I've never read here that could be a solution to going over eight tuners. When I went over eight, DirecTV installed a SWiM16 -- at no charge.

So to the OP ... Now that you have an HR34 on order, you might want to call in and see about upgrading. Seems a waste to have two DVRs with only one operational tuner.
