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?

Hi Bowflex,

Yes, Windows Media Center will automatically change the channel to record whatever programs you have scheduled - unless they are live simultaneously, in which case you would need an additional TV tuner. Here's an FAQ on recording live TV using Windows Media Center. Let me know if that answers your question!

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.
