BlueSky TV tuner information

With each BlueSky TV digital box (PVR), there are six tuners available to be shared between the digital box and the BlueSky TV Portal(s). Up to three BlueSky TV digital boxes can be networked together for a maximum of 12 tuners that can be shared between the PVRs and Portals, in any configuration. These 12 tuners will be shared between Live TV, Recordings, and the portals.

 

Up to 3 BlueSky TV digital boxes may be networked together in one home with up to 3 BlueSky TV portals attached to each:

  • Total of 1.5TB storage space (shared)
  • 12 simultaneous recordings
  • 12 TV maximum

Note:

 

When 3 BlueSky TV boxes (HDPVRs) are networked together, the tuner limit comes down to 4 recordings at once per BlueSky TV box which then translates to the 12 simultaneous recordings limit. BlueSky TV hardware configuration can be networked together for a maximum of 12 tuners that can be shared between the PVRs and Portals.
