If the direction Dish seems to be going with one receiver having multiple outputs to different TVs, I would if it would be possible to have a "set top box" that would incorporate 3, 4 or 5 tuners and be able to output them all to different TVs. I think it would make many installations easier, since most homes are wired for cable. You would just stickt his box in the basement and hook it up to the current cable lines running throughout the house. Everyone would have a 200ft UHF remote and be able to access the DVR content. Current 7200rpm drives might not be able to take on 5 tuners, I'm not really sure, but I think this would be a great idea. Not only would you save no receiver costs but every TV be able to access the SAME content and have DVR capatibilites would be great.
