umm..yeah, that's what I meant by "I went into the backend setup program ,
and I added the two tuners from the PVR-500, and it seems they were detected
correctly" but I guess I didn't specifically link them to a listing source.
In fact, I'm not sure where I ever linked my original card to a listing
source.  I know where I set that up, but since I only had one, I guess I
never had to toggle anything to specifically look at that card  since it was
the only one.  I did this over my lunch break, so I didn't have much time to
figure out what was wrong.  I think that's where I need to look next.
