The Rogers 9865 PVR and the new 4K PVR have 8 tuners, allowing you to record up to 8 HD programmes at the same time, while also watching a recorded programme. I don't usually push my PVR that hard, but it is possible.
I have a second 9865 in another room where my wife sometimes watches TV, so theoretically, I could record another 8 programmes there and if I had WHPVR (Whole Home PVR) would have access anywhere in the home. I believe WHPVR allows for at least 3 PVRs within WHPVR, but you could add another PVR "outside" of the WHPVR setup but inside your home. I have no idea when the bandwidth limit coming into your home would be reached, but with Gigabit feed being available to many homes, it would be a lot.
