[mythtv-users] Dual tuner info

On that note, couldn't I just be more careful about what I schedule?
For example, could I set both cards to the single video source, and only
schedule simultaneous recordings on channels I know I can receive on
both tuners? Are there any issues I'm forgetting, like how live TV
would behave if it decided to record on the source with more channels
and then I attempt to watch live TV on a digital channel?

I had a similar problem when I had 2 separate Video Sources defined, one
for the cable box and one for basic cable without the digital channels.
I re-configured it with a single Video Source, and then tied the 2 cards
to that 1 source. Now, I only get 1 copy of the channels in the EPG. I
had to get a second cable box to make the two inputs identical, though.

Can someone point me in the direction of good instructions on dual tuner
setups? It seems like an obscure thing to find. I have them working OK
so far, but the EPG shows two copies of the channel. Also, depending on
which one you choose, the backend will come back with an error saying
that the tuner is in use if you choose two programs in the same timeslot
to record. While this isn't a problem for me, the WAF will be low on
remembering "which" of the two EPG items to choose...
Thanks to all!
