If I understand correctly, it is different from a normal card with two
different channel lineups attached to two different inputs in that one
input gives an MPEG transport stream and the other gives something else.
I might find this patch useful to record a MPEG TS using IEEE 1394 for
some channels and a MPEG PS using a WinTV PVR 250 for other channels
from a single Motorola 6200.
