    Can Tivo series 3HD record 4 shows at the same time ?

    Can a Tivo series 3HD record 4 shows at the same time if I get 2 cards ? (1 card in each of the 2 slots of the tivo)
    Thank you

    On the Series3/HD, you can only record 2 channels simultaneously. In addition, the original model (TCD648250B) doesn't fully support multi-stream (M-card) CableCards, so you need 2 cards to record 2 channels. 4 tuners weren't available until the Premier 4.

    Technically the S3 HD has 4 tuners, 2 OTA and 2 cable, but can only use 2 of them at a time, and of course the software only supports recording 2 shows at a time.
