OK - I understand now, and can see why people are getting excited about 150 
supoprt  - it would save money when you need two of them.

But that prompts another question - how I do split the cable coax connection 
between two tuner cards - is that another "rf splitter", which is not a term 
that I understand but my borther will?  I feel as though I have not read 
about any of these issues on the documentation pages, which may be my 
opportunity to contribute in due course
