Tuner card, if you use PVR-250 or similar.

PVR-500 has only one coax feed that is split internally to the two 
tuners. The other coax connector is for FM radio antenna.

But in your case you could use one existing PVR-250 for OTA and the new 
PVR-500 for cable (both tuners), or the other way around. Either one 
would work for S-Video/composite from the VCR.
