And you won't be able to record anything from the second tuner, because 
the 150 is _not_ a dual-tuner device, unlike the PVR-500, which is.

Any "Tuner 1" you find on a PVR device isn't really there, in the same 
way that my PVR-250's don't have 4 S-Video inputs.  As stated in the 
HOWTO, only the lowest numbered device in each class is actually there.

So on a PVR-500, you get /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 and you'd use the 
Tuner 0 on each one.
