Do you think it is possible you have a weak signal? I have a PVR500 and 
had to boost the signal because the second tuner was very fuzzy. After 
using a signal booster, it looks great.

If you want to force Tuner 2 to record channel 2, just turn the priority 
up for that tuner (In Mythtv-setup) and then turn the priority for the 
channel up. As far as I know, tuner 2 should start recording that 
channel then.
