[mythtv-users] HD-3000 card doing NTSC & ATSC

I have my Myth system somewhat functional (SLED 10 based with "latest"
SVN version on an AMD-64). At this point, I have one pcHDTV HD-3000
card installed (plan for 2 HD-3000's and 1 Hauppage PVR-350). Has
anyone gotten the HD-2000 card to automatically handle/switch between
NTSC and ATSC?
Background to my question:
When configuring the capture card in the backend, I can only get it to
be recognized as an ATSC card. I selected the option to open the DVB
card for use. I interpret this to mean - open the card, use it and the
free the card up after use. I have a local antenna and Cox cable
defined with DataDirect. Both the antenna & cable listings have both
NTSC & ATSC cannels defined. I have played with the listing
configuration and essentially loaded both the local antenna & cable
listings simultaneously. This enabled me to, while using LiveTV, select
some NTSC channel (& watch it) and then manually enter an ATSC channel
and the tuner switched automatically - I think. I qualify this because
this was after an extremely long day and quite frankly I may have mixed
things up. But I did some LiveTV recording of iTV (formely PAX) which
is an NTSC channel and some ATSC channels (NBC/ABC/...) from the same
single cable without changing the configuration. I was not able to make
this happen again so it may have been a fluke.
Also, is there anyway to configure the HD-3000 to be just NTSC? It is
recognized as an ATSC card and I cannot seem to change it.
