With the Genie system you can record +/or watch up to 5 programs at once. 
if all the tv’s are off you can record up to 5.  If you have 2 TVs that are tuned to channels not being recorded - 3 additional programs can be recorded.

DVR (SD or HD) has 2 tuners. So you can record up to 2 shows at the same time.


Genie (HR34, HR44, HR54) is a 5 tuner HDDVR. Allows other HDDVRs, so can increase tuners and recording space.


Genie-2 (HS17) has 7 tuners. Forbids other HDDVRs, being a Client only system so that is a hard cap.


Mini Genie Client (C31, C41, etc.) has no tuners. Is an extension of the Genie/Genie-2.
