He says the Premium Channels suit his needs, but his wife needs the Hallmark channel.
@GetMatt is using a separate subscription to “Hallmark Movies Now” ($5.99/mo or $59.99/yr) for his wife. Thanks for the tip Matt. https://www.hmnow.com/prices-membership
Thanks, Debbie, I will pass that message along.
It does not get you all the new stuff though. There is a mix of new and old shows and movies and it has stuff that is not on the channels.

I like the new Servio and Scribe offerings announcement. Is there a design target for the Servio as far as how many concurrent / simultaneous streams it will be designed to record and / or stream recorded content ?
It is limited to 4 up and 4 down at one time.
Does that mean a total of 8 streams at once (4 streams being recorded + 4 recordings being watched)?

or

streams being recorded + streams being watched = 4?

Yes
Perfect!

One last question. Can someone who already owns HDHomeRun equipment just add a servio to their network to act as the record engine (and not use a PC, NAS or Scribe)? In other words, can it act like the Scribe, but just without the built in tuners?

Find that a strange question as that is exactly what the servio is... keep in mind anything related to SD's dvr implementation requires modern tuners (prime, expand, extend, connect, quatro duo) not the legacy tuners (3rd gen or prior, often commonly referred to as duals)

Yes... it can record from any (non legacy) HDHomeRun tuner.

It can also record from the SCRIBE tuners when the SCRIBE drive is full.

When I first started reading this I thought servio was just a mispelled term for one of the many so so media server platforms. After I looked into the market these devices are targeting, the original poster's idea makes perfect sense...sort of. I say put an 8 port Gig POE switch in the Servio and release a tuner that's POE powered for expansion. Cascading is never a good idea...not even in VoIP deployments. It's a method of last resort for a phone company to sell a hosted product with very little investment.
