    I currently have one S3 and two HDs. Any sharing between them is a copy. I am getting a new Roamio Pro to replace the S3. Will the interaction both ways between the Pro and the old HDs still be a copy operation or will one or both way be able to stream? If the answer is that one or both of the directions is still a copy, does the Roamio help to increase the throttling limits at all? ie. copies on my current systems barely stay ahead of playing... would be nice if the copy worked faster.

    I doubt much will change. The HDs can't stream and the speed of the copy will be limited by the HDs.

    If you get the 6 tuner Roamio and a couple of Minis you'll have the same number of tuners and a much more user friendly setup.
