You'll need one tuner for every channel you want to watch/record
simultaneously. As mentioned, you can use analog tuners to get the analog
feed from the cablebox. Another option if you want to get your network
channels in HD is to use an ATSC tuner and antenna. Depending on where you
are, this can actually give you a better signal than cable. And of course,
it's free.
