I'm not aware of 1401 ever having been deployed anywhere, or even released by Cisco. 1402 had some stability issues, but we've gotten most MSOs (and are working on the rest) to upgrade to at least 1501. 1601 only has a few small changes from 1501, and I doubt anyone will notice any differences between the two.

In your case though, there isn't anything to worry about. The default limit is 4 tuners OF EACH TYPE. So you can have any combination of 4 CableCard, 4 Clear QAM, 4 OTA, etc. - so if you installed 4 of each of those 3 types, you could have 12 tuners in the system with no need to increase the limit. Where the limit increase comes into play is if you want to have 2 Ceton cards (so 8 CableCard tuners), more than 4 Clear QAM tuners, etc.
The limits are per tuner type, so by default, you can have 4 OCURs, 4 ClearQAM tuners, 4 analog tuners, etc. Our software (and Tunersalad) ups that, though our software will only work if at least one InfiniTV is installed.
