Looking at the archives, it seems that having two PVR-150s in the same backend
is no problem (and eventually a pcHDTV or Fusion as well down the road).  I
currently have the retail 150 with the remote, so I'd get the 150MCE since I
don't need the remote, and radio would be a nice addition.  My question: when
using the 150's IR blaster, does Myth care what card the blaster is attached
to?  Currently I'm only using the tuner for analog cable, but with two I would
consider attaching my digital cable box.  However, since the MCE has better
audio inputs (2 RCA instead of 1/8" mini-jack), I'd use that if possible.  Is
Myth smart enough to use the blaster connected to the first 150 (retail) to
control the cable box connected to the other 150 (MCE)?

Different take: Can two retail 150s with IR Blasters be used within Myth (two
cable boxes)?  Just checking, but I doubt I want to pay for another cable box
since much of what we watch is on analog anyway.  I'm pretty sure I saw that
this was NOT possible in Windows, and saw some stuff in the archives LIRC can
do that now.
