With the InfiniTV 4 tuner you can view/record up to 4 shows at any given time.
I used the HDHomerun for quite a while but can't use it now as with COX and WMC I can't get a guide since they changed the settings for providing guides and COX doesn't seem to care. I wonder if a Ceton would work with them. Do you have any knowledge of how the guide service is working in different areas. I heard they had problems here (in AZ) and in Oklahoma, Louisiana and possibly Texas with the guides.
