Why buy an extra tuner when you can get two extra tuners for a few bucks more?

Whoever has "Grey's Anatomy" to record on Sunday, well there's also a new episode on the following Monday (not the usual time slot). Thanks to all my tuners, BeyondTV will grab it without missing all the other monday night shows that my wife loves (The Apprentice, CSI: Miami, Grey's Anatomy - they all conflict with a dual-tuner). She can't watch live TV anymore. It has to be recorded and go through the commercial-removal process first.

And with some season finales going to 2 hours, there are lots of overlapping shows that will cause conflicts with just a dual-tuner PVR.
