Computers can be wired to the RG (modem) via cat5 cable. There are four network ports for connection. Additional wired connections can be provided by a switch.

The two receiver limit is for wireless receivers. You will get one wired DVR. I believe the max number of receivers is eight.
You are aware that you have four channel/program streams coming into the house?? The max different channels you can watch/record at one time is four.

I can only address the TV part since we have one laptop.

 

You can have up to 8 TVs hooked up to UV.  Your package includes ONE DVR and ONE STB.  Above that, they are each $7 month.

 

You need to be aware that you are limited to 4 LIVE 'streams'.  How many are SD and how many are HD will depend on your location.  MOST customers are getting 4HD but some are limited to 3HD.
