I have three accounts setup on Z2L as well.  It may be because I
couldn't figure out how to do it with one account when I tried the
first time.  They are for cable analog (pvr250), cable qam
(hdhomerun), and atsc (hdhomerun).

If there are technical limitations as Robert mentioned, maybe there is
a way to not have to pay for that second account if needed.
Unfortunately I'm sure that may lead to people sharing accounts or
something to get around the billing for a couple of friends or a
system integrator.  I'd gather that there could be security measures
to help prevent abuse of such a feature.

Just an option.  I'd like to throw in my thanks for all the work at
schedules direct.  I'm a little anxious at the pricing structure, a
little upset that TMS is getting my to pay for this data 4 or 5 times
over, a little excited that a permanent solution is close, a little
afraid that schedulesdirect will have the same problems as z2l.

Thanks guys
