so... if I use my cards for OTA signals and the mplexid is unique ( 2-19 in my
table ) the multirec stuff won't work for me.... I was hoping that the code
allowed the card to tune multiple, digital signals and the code would split out
the different channels real-time....

does anyone else know for certain  ( or where it's documented ) on what the
muiltirec enables exactly?
