This will work, but isn't a good solution. The card is only capable of
using one tuner at a time. So if you have an ATSC and NTSC recording at the
same time, one or both will fail. That's why I submitted the patch to make
the analog options work for the Kworld card (someone else did the hard work
for the HD-5500, mine was a one liner). It allows you to setup the NTSC
tuner as a "daughter card" so only one tuner will be in use at a time.
On my system I use QAM and have a single cable going to the top input. I
get both QAM and NTSC from that one cable. I tested and was able to a tune
a few ATSC stations with the bottom input.
On a side note when I upgraded my kernel a few months ago the ATSC and QAM
inputs flip flopped on me. Originally ATSC was on top and QAM was on the
bottom. I don't recall what the upgrade was from or to, but I'm currently
running 188.8.131.52 with the setup I mentioned above.
