You need a tuner for each channel you want to record/watch. I have 4 tuners personally, but some people have 8, or more.
So, yes it's possible, and I'd say most people that use media center exclusively have more than one tuner.

Depends if you have it hooked up to a tv or a monitor.

If you have one TV-card and a monitor, then your statement is correct.

If you have one TV-card hooked to your TV, you can record a different channel than you are watching on TV.

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.
