My setup includes 2 PVR-150's and 1 ATI HDTV Wonder. The PVR-150's are
connected directly to Time-Warner cable, the HDTV card is connected to
an outdoor HD antenna. My setup works great - no problems. I have not
tried to "force" the HDTV card into analog use as you mentioned in your
post. My take on it is that the kernel will simply load the card for HD
use only by default. But I wanted to mention something to you.
Before I converted my PVR box from Windows MCE to MythTV (Mythbuntu -
BTW), I was using a custom driver (called "Krams" I think) that would
allow the Windows MCE machine to use this card for BOTH HD and analog
tuning. It worked fine with only a long pause going between analog and
HD channels. I presume that this was Windows unloading the analog
driver, then loading the HD driver and vice-versa. That said, It CAN be
done! With me having 2 analog cards in the box, I have no need for doing
Anyway, good luck. If I can help further, let me know.
