This only works if you have a different source for each encoder.  I have 
two PVR-x50's both recording from two DISH receivers, so I only have one 
source (DISH channel data provided by datadirect).  Therefore, all my 
recordings--regardless of which encoder recorded them--have chanid's in 
the 1000-1300 range...

But, unfortunately, it doesn't tell you if your interpretation of the 
available info is correct.  ;)

TTBOMK, there's no way to find out which encoder was used to record your 
recordings (other than in special circumstances, as above).
