    Does anyone know how many tuners are in a Premier XL? I can't find a spec sheet with that information on it.

    The XL has 2 tuners since it can record OTA and Cable simultaneously. The 2-tuner models have two RF inputs on the back.

    The cable-only versions have four cable tuners, and have only one RF input on the back.

    If you're looking for one on Ebay, beware that some sellers paste specs for the wrong model in their auction so check pictures of the actual item, especially pics showing the model number.

    Here are the Five Different Premiere Models:

    TCD746320 Premiere - Antenna & Cable, 2 Tuners, 45hr, 320GB
    TCD746500 Premiere - Antenna & Cable, 2 Tuners, 75hr, 500GB
    TCD748000 Premiere XL - Antenna & Cable, 2 Tuners, 150hr, 1TB

    TCD750500 Premiere 4 - Cable Only, 4 Tuners, 75hr, 500GB
    TCD758250 Premiere Elite XL4 - Cable Only, 4 Tuners, 300hr, 2TB

    it actually does, but it's hidden (almost buried) - check out the diagram of the front of the unit, it lists record 1 and record 2 (and the corresponding red circular recording indicator lights).
