Sorry, Mike, but I can't ignore thatlie.  Actually, having an extra 
capture card gives /more/ functionality.  Whereas someone who's relying 
on one card to record can only record two shows on the same multiplex, 
someone who has two cards can /always/ record two shows--regardless of 
where they're broadcast.  :)
