It's hit or miss.  I just went through an input rearrangment, where I 
put the the cable on 150 and Directv on the 500.

The cable captures got a *lot* better (both tuners on the 500 had wavey, 
bad reception - I first thought it was the cable, till all this 
discusion about the 500 tuners), and the svideo from the 500 seems 
pretty good - at least as good as what it was from the 150.
