[mythtv-users] recording on two PVR250 or 350 inputs at once?

So are there any cheap alternatives to a full PVR250/350 that has only
s-video and rca audio inputs and a hardware encoder?  I'm thinking along
the lines of my digital cable box and the remote, IR receiver and tuner
aren't necessary for this source.

	You cannot do this.  MPEG encoder aside, the card only has the
A/D hardware to demodulate and digitize one signal at a time.  I guess
you could think of this as "technically still recording"... or at least
digitizing.
