it seems you are knowledgeable about the Hopper. So if I could I would like to throw out a hypothetical situation for you and hopefully you could tell me the true answer. I know that the Hopper is advertised to record prime time of your local big three or four. for a scheduled time each night. I know I can remove that feature as well.
So, What I want to know is. IF I have a Hopper and three joeys. How many channels can I record on AT THE SAME TIME. On each joey and the hopper.
For instance my daughter wanted to record a show at 9pm and we wanted to record 3 other(all on other Joeys) channels at 9pm on the same day(all of them being outside of the big three or four primetime) What will the system do and what will the system not do ? I have been calling DN and calling DN and none of the sales team has a straight answer. I just want the facts. Before I sign away my first born for back charges and regret for not having all the answers beforehand. Is there a table that would explain the DVR abilities and inabilities ? I.E. you can watch X while you record Z and you can record on X while watching Z that was recorded previously.
I just hope that this all makes some sort of since to you. These are real questions from someone that just wants to be well informed beforehand.

Joeys have no tuners of their own. They are wholly dependent on Hoppers for programming. So adding joeys to a setup will not allow you to view or record additional live programming.
So if you imagine that you will ever need/want to view or record more than three live programs at once (excluding PTAT) you'll want to go with two hoppers and two joeys rather than one hopper and three joeys. That will give you six tuners to cover your live tv and recording needs.
As for viewing pre-recorded content. That is independent of tuner usage. All tuners could be in use, but Hoppers and Joey could each watch content from the Hoppers' DVRs.
Hope that helps clear it up. Given your hypothetical, I'd recommend two Hoppers.

Please remember "Lose" implies 'Loss', "Loose" does not.
