Multi-room DVR is just a feature to allow you to share your DVR services across all set-top boxes. So you can view, schedule, and delete items on a DVR from any STB.
What TH3_FRB is saying is that with one DVR, you have only 2 tuners in that DVR, so you can only record 2 things at a time on that DVR and watch a third channel. If you are accustomed to recording more than 2 shows at a time than you might want a second DVR.
SOme people also have 2 DVRs for more space, but with IMG 1.9 supporting external storage, some find this unnecessary now.
