[mythtv-users] is this possible (multiple tuners and sources)

I'm doing the same thing with an HD3000 and Firewire.  For channels that 
overlap both sources (and therefore both capture cards) Myth seems to 
always want to record on whichever tuner you added first.  Sounds like 
you want to add your PVR-150 first so that overlapping channels would 
get recorded on it preferentially.

By the way, in my setup I can't watch live TV on any of the channels on 
the second tuner.  When I try to change channels to one of them my 
backend doesn't budge, as if it's an invalid channel.  Have you gotten 
this to work?
