just upgraded to fios quantum
Enthusiast - Level 3

i just upgrade to fios quantum where i could record 6 shows.  I got a message saying there was a dvr conflict.  I had 3 shows recording and was watching another channel in another room with a media client and my brother and father were watching another channel in a different room also with a media client.  Why did this happen.  I thought I was able to record 6 shows. 

Thanks for any help.  I'm just confused.

You can record up to 6 shows.

The VMS has 6 tuners.

The IPCs use one of the tuners each if they are on.

How many IPCs do you have total?
