Depends.RipleyK said:We have 5 receivers: 1 HR20, 1 HR21, 1 old Tivo DVR, and 2 really old Phillips receivers that are not DVRs. Had installation done a few days ago. Tech said he could not get us 2 cables to each DVR because of how tghe house was wired by the previous owners and the only way to do so was to literally "break down the walls" in 2 spots to fish the wires.
What we ended up with is: 2 receivers work fine and all 3 DVRs only have one active tuner. Is there some way that we can get the DVRs to work w/ 2 active tuners each??
Really going to depend on the layout of the house and where the receivers are.
In some cases, it will be impossible to run a second line to some locations short of cutting out sections of drywall/plaster/whatever to open up a wall.
That being said, you could replace your current switch (assuming WB68) with a SWM8. That will give you dual tuner use on both your HR2x. The Tivo unit is SOL for the second tuner unless you can get another line to it. The Tivo and the old Phillips units would have to be run off the legacy outputs of the SWM.
