Not really. I just have two separate zap2it accounts. The zip
code trick doesn't appear to work anymore :(

Connecting both the firewire and the hdhomerun will generate
a lot of activity on the zap2it servers as the two lineups
fight over which channels to keep in your lineup. I'm fairly
sure you could make it work if you created the lineup in the
right order (but I think describing how to do something that
will generate undue stress on the zap2it servers is a bad idea.)
