If you think of it as your own personal home network, that would be a good start but if you don't have one setup maybe this will help. In the package depending on the number of tv's in the house you want to use the X-1 platform on on, you will have the main DVR (a hub , something similar to your main PC) which say goes in your main setup, it installs just like your existing dvr or cable box with hdmi . Now the rest of the set top boxes (referred to as stb
around here) will go in each of the other rooms and all will have access to the main dvr (hub) in your main setup, they will have full functionality and access to all the recordings stored there and the ability to record as well as through the dvr itself is built into the stb's but its not as its in the main setup. All use the existing cable wire in each room. So all you need is one main X-1 dvr and as many stb for each room you accesses to it.
