Depends on the model.
a 7XXX can record up to 2 programs (you can't watch anything else live while that is going on).
A VMS can record up to 6 programs. But if you are watching programs via IPC each one takes a tuner.

THe 7xxx and 6xxx HD DVR's can record 2 programs at a time Hopefully you don't have a 6xxx or a Standard Definition DVR.
A VMS used in Quantum service has 6 tuners and can do 6 recordings at a time. However for each program you watch at the VMS or the satellite IPC's you use a tuner and lose one ability to record.
VMS boxes in some areas are also being used with all but 2 tuners disabled (non-quantum service). I don't know if this means that if the VMS and a IPC are in use you have no ability to record, or not. And I don't know if you can have more than one IPC in such configuration.

Thank you for explaining this. I knew I had Quantum Enhanced Service and was suppose to be able to record up to 6 shows. I couldn't figure out why I could only record 3 shows at a time. We have 1 HD Multi Room DVR and 3 more HD Stbs with everyone taping their own shows AND watching something else your explanation makes perfect sense. Thank you!
