Sigh! I'm with Charter for my television service. I'm having problems receiving over 30 Channels and I fight every single day just to keep my signal coming in (including just prior to my posting here). And, I'm at the end. I have a major disability and I'm standing on one foot, in pain, as I try to be my own tech support person. I just can't do it physically any longer. I must make a change. And now, I have to be honest. I currently use the Tivo Bolt and the Tivo Roamio to record up to 10 shows at a time. Like many households we have multiple people wanting to record things at the exact same time, so we do use many of the Tivo Tuners on any given night. How many tuners we use at a time maximum, I do not know. And I hurt too badly due to my disease to find out. And now here is my lead in to my question. If/when I go with Directv I would have to go with their Genie, which has 5 tuners plus one of their HD DVR's that would have 2 tuners. That would give me a grand total of 7 tuners to record shows on. I am certain that many of you also have at least 3 people wanting to record shows at the same time in your house as well. So, if you would please, could you please let me know, how you handle the heavy demands of multiple viewers in your home, who are wanting to use Directv to record a lot of shows in your house? Is it something that works out ok for you? Or are you frustrated by having just 7 tuners, as opposed to at least 3 more, which are offered by other service providers? Please help me here, I would like a better understanding of how you, as a Directv subscriber view your current tuner situation. Please help me replace Charter with something better! Thank you!
