Best answer: Based on which HDHomeRun tuner box you choose, you can record anywhere from 2-4 shows at once. The HDHomeRun Servio doesn't have a tuner so you will need to get an HDHomeRun device with a tuner to plug into the Servio — then it will act as a DVR for the tuners.

Watch your shows where you want

Products from HDHomeRun have quickly become a favorite among cord cutters, from OTA tuners to its DVR services. A more recent product from the company is the HDHomeRun Servio, which acts like a server for the things you record from the HDHomeRun DVR services. The Servio has an internal 2TB hard drive that can store up to 300 hours of video content. Since this is an internet-connected device, it can allow you to access all of your recorded programmings anywhere you are online.

The HDHomeRun Servio acts as an add-on to your existing HDHomeRun setup. Its goal is to simplify your recording and storage by keeping a smart HDHomeRun integrated server. So, to store or watch anything, your Servio you will need an HDHomeRun product with a tuner provided. Here are some options.
