Multiple Clients, 1 many tuners?

Lets say I have 5 clients all watching same channel at the same time. Do I have to have 5 tuners, or will sage be smart enough to stream the show the 5 clients only using the 1 tuner?

Just the one tuner.

It will record the show to the hard drive and then stream it back to each client.

One tuner. Sage doesn't stream from tuners, it streams from files. For live TV, it first records the program to a file, and then streams that file to as many clients as are watching that program just like it does for previously recorded programs. So you never need more than one tuner per program being recorded or watched live.

Thanks for the quick response. It was as I thought...but sometimes posts in other forums make me doubt myself.
