Cool.  Could you or anyone else elaborate on how to do this?  Am I 
correct that you have an IR receiver attached to each PVR-x50 card, but 
you're using one remote to send different signals to each IR receiver?

So tell me if I have this right:  I'll have two PVR-250's, each with 
it's own (included) IR receiver attached.  I'll be able to control both 
receivers with a single remote (I'd like to use the universal remote 
that came with my NAD surround receiver - is that possible?).  I'll also 
need an IR blaster to control the two Dish receivers from Myth, right? 
Can a single IR blaster be shared across two PVR-250's?

So many questions...sorry!  Thanks for any help.
