Yea, I think what I might do is get a regular box for what I'm using the 
PVR-150 for right now and then use the firewire to the HD box for the 
channels that have 5C=0.

I'm going to try and call them a few more times tomorrow and see if I can't 
talk to anyone that will let me get two boxes. If not I'll just get a regular 
digital cable box for the other channels.

Then I'll need to find a way to tune the channels on the non-HD box...
