Dual tuner DVR?

Message 1 of 5
(1,121 Views)

Is there a dual tuner DVR for my FIOS service that has two HDMI outs with totally seperate tuners so I can hook a Slingbox up to one and have complete independent control so someone at home using the DVR will not be effected by someone on the road using the slingbox?

Actually let me rephrase, I need two outputs, one HDMI and one other but they need to be completely seperate so that two people can use the DVR independently of each other, like a multi room setup only instead of another TV in the house it would be a slingbox hooked up to the other tuner and the remote user would have the ability to change channels and watch content without effecting the home user. I think I just need two DVR's to do this, but I'm just asking if there is an easier way to do this with just one DVR. Do any of the DVR's have this ability?


None of the current dvrs can do what you want. You would have to get 2.

No, the FiOS DVRs have a single output.

Actually it has multiple outputs active at the same time, although each output is a different type.  May be useable for what OP wants.
