The maximum number of streams the DVR can record at one time is 4, and a maximum of 3 of those can be in HD (the fourth would have to be in SD).

The number of HD streams could also be limited by the number of streams coming in to you house, which is determined by your profile.  You can check your WAN profile under System Options to see what this limit is.  If you are a fairly new subscriber, it should not be less than 3 and thus not an issue.

Finally, since there is a limit to the total number of streams, if you are actively watching a stream, that may affect how many the DVR can use.

I believe jeffermc meant to say:

"The maximum number of streams the DVR can record at one time is 4, and a maximum of 3 of those can be in HD (the fourth would have to be in SD)."

Also you can set up priorities on series recordings.  You can tell the DVR which has priority over the others.  With that said I can not find any type of support article on how to set it up and since I never have used it I can't give you instructions to do so.  Maybe someone else will chime in.

I found this:  "You can set a priority for Scheduled Recordings, go to Recordings>Series >Series Priority.  Click on it and prioritize all your series".

"If you find this post helpful and it solved your issue please mark it as a solution.  This will help other forum members locate it and will also let everyone know that it corrected your problem. If they have the same issue they will know how to solve theirs"

Yes, thanks beebeesa, I did indeed mean "SD" there.  I'll fix it if I can still edit that post.

When you go to the Series Priority, you can move a series entry to the top of the list, or up or down one slot at a time.  Given two different series trying to record at the same time with only one open slot, the one with the lowest number (i.e. higher in the list) will be recorded in preference to the one with a higher number.
