I vaguely remember from somewhere that the DCT series of set top boxes 
has a built in DOCSIS modem... Could this be the mystery third tuner?

I think that this is reason why my old 6208 and my new 6214 have 
Ethernet ports on the back. In theory it becomes not just your tuner but 
your cable modem as well. Not that those ports do anything right now. 
I've got to admit I'd love to get rid of one more piece of hardware from 
my network... but on the other hand if the one box goes out, not only 
can I not watch TV but I couldn't get online either...
