Since I added my second tuner over a year ago, I can count on one hand
(two fingers, actually) the number of times I've not been able to
record something I wanted to watch due to scheduling conflicts.  I
switched from OTA broadcasts to Dish Network about 6 months ago, and
there's still no need (for me, anyways) to add a third capture card.
