    I'm considering getting a Premiere Elite, but I'm wondering how the 4-shows-at-once thing works with CableCard. Right now I have a TivoHD with 1 multistream CableCard so I can record 2 shows at once.

    Is there a special type of CableCard you have to use with the Elite? Or do you need 2 of the multistream cards?

    Just one M-card does it. Works great.

    Multistream CableCards are technically capable of decoding 6 streams simultaneously. For now they are limited by the number of tuners built into the host device (such as the Tivo, etc.) So with a 4-tuner Elite, you still only need 1 m-card.
