I don't think you can be quite that specific, short of simply not including 
that channel in the channel listings for other cards, but there's a recording 
priorities system that will allow you to give certain programs a higher 
priority, so they'll be assigned to the first available card. Just make sure 
the 250 is your first card defined in the system. You can also set input 
priorities on the cards, but I've not toyed with this myself, so I'm not sure 
how it relates to this situation...

Yes. Just set up two different channel listings.
