How many shows can I view and record at once?

Each media player gives you the ability to record or watch one show at a time. For example if you have 6 media players and two people are watching live TV, you would have the ability to record 4 additional shows. You would still have the ability to record the show that is being watched live. In the event there is a tuner conflict such as when you have six recordings scheduled and someone tries to watch a show that is not being recorded, your DVR will bring up an action menu that outlines your options and lets you make a choice.
