4Gen FAST Channels Recording = 4 Tuners?

Can the FAST channels on the 4Gen Tablo operate like a third tuner? Can you record 2 OTA channels and 1 FAST channel at the same time?

I am able to record two FAST channels and 2 OTA channels at the same time. If add any more of either type, I get a conflict. So I can’t record 3 FAST channels, even if no OTA channels are being recorded.

Yep. The 4th gen has two ‘virtual tuners’ on top of the OTA tuners.

Wow, that was very helpful and informative. Two OTA and two virtual tuners!
