Thanks!  This will be a big help.  I assume that what you've done is
set up 2 tuners using the same cable box -- one with a channel list
that includes all non-5C channels that grabs from the cable box
through firewire, and the other that includes only the 5C channels
that tunes the cable box through firewire and gets the programming
through s-video to the PVR-150.

This sounds like a much better setup.  I'll have to give it a try.
