I've noticed recently that 0.24 (haven't tried this in recent memory
on earlier versions) is giving me grief with all three hybrid tuners
at my disposal:
HVR-950Q -- really doesn't like to have both analog and digital configured.
PCTV-800i -- ditto.
HVR-1600 (hardware compression) -- loses analog audio randomly.
So I've given up trying to make those work with analog,
and just use them for digital (ATSC OTA) only.
My one remaining PVR-250 will do me until the end of analog
here in Ottawa (Canada) late this summer.
Which reminds me of another topic. Stay tuned.
