honestly, i need 6 tuners. seems like i'll be going to 10 tuners by the time im done, 2 elites at 4 tuners each and the tivo hd with 2 tuners. i work from 6pm to 2 am. so everything i want to watch must be recorded. no choice. but salary is great, so no complaints. it will be pricey, but then again they should hold most of their value for a few years. the 1 crt tv has series 2. the other 2 hdtv's use the 2nd series 2 and the tivo hd. one question, will i need 2 cablecards for the tivo hd? there are two slots... so im guessing i need 2 cablecards - (1 for each tuner in the tivohd?) so im guessing i'll need 2 cablecards for each premier as well ? m card, s card, does it matter? if i get 2 m cards, does that alleviate my need to 2 scards in the tiviohd? is it the same in the premiers?
