VMS1100 - Premium Service - won't record 12 programs
Enthusiast - Level 1

I recently upgraded to FiOS Quantum Premium because I kept getting recording conflict messages. We have one DVR and 4 STBs, so I assumed it was using all 6 tuners and thereby causing the conflict. Now that I upgraded boxes I understood I would now have double the disc space as well as access to up to 12 tuners. Last night I got a recording coflict message again and had to cancel a recording to continue watching live TV.

Isn't the upgraded box supposed to have 12 tuners? And if so, how could I possibly be exceeding the 12 program limit? Did they ship me the wrong box? And is there a way I can verify how many tuners this box actually has?

When you go to Premium service, you get a second VMS.

Each one has 6 tuners.

Did you get a second VMS?

Sure sounds like they only sent you one box, not 2. You need 2 VMS boxes to have 12 tuners.
