Mediaroom supports only one PVR per 'account'. Having more than one would mess with the whole-home bandwidth and stream management capabilities of Mediaroom.

You can't run a PVR as a "dumb" STB since the "GUID" on the box identifies whether it is a PVR or not.

Cis430 vs cis330 as second or third box

If cis430 PVRs are the same price as CIS330 receivers on a sale would it make sence to buy all 430s? I understand only one will act as a PVR and the others as 330s. True? Are there any usability differences? Remote control differences? Any other reason not to do that?

Thanks!

It's a wash really. I guess you'd have a spare 430, but probably the 330 would last much longer since it doesn't have a hard drive.

From what I've heard, that's true.

Not as far as I've heard.
