Right, the Ceton tuners do support multiple TAs, provided you can get them from your cable company.
In many markets, TAs are in limited supply and TiVo/Moxi users have a hard enough time obtaining one. Obtaining multiple TAs may not always be feasible, which is an advantage of Moxi's multi-room implementation (once it supports liveTV via extenders) over TiVo's.

It does work with the Cisco TA. You're just limited to two tuners when it's connected.
Comcast and FiOS aren't deploying SDV to new markets, so you need only be worried about this limitation if you have a Brighthouse, Cablevision, Charter, Cox, or Time Warner system with dozens of analog channels.
