Windows 7: RAM channels

RAM channels

What exactly is "triple channel" RAM? Is it just RAM that comes in a set of 3 or is the RAM different to dual channel?
The reason I'm asking is that I was wondering if I could buy 3 sticks of "dual channel" RAM, and put them together, to make it triple channel on a new computer.

Changing channels
Excuse my ignorance but I was wondering, when you record different shows on different channels on the same or even a different day will MC change to the appropriate channel like Time Warner's DVR service does?
