    Have 3 separate recording units. They can talk to the master backend
via your home network. This will probably require a nice wired home network


    I have this sort of setup with 2 DirecTV recievers. Each has it's own
HD-PVR. Both nfs mount the disk that contains all of the recordings on the
master server that sits in a different room entirely.
