    I have captions burned into my recordings (hdpvr) so I can tell which
recording came from which recorder (I have). Another approach I had taken
before was to have different channel numbers with one prefix for one 
recorder and another one for the other one. I had an HDPVR running off of
a SD reciever for awhile. So I actually did have different lineups there 
to account for the fact that one tuner could deal with HD channels and
the other couldn't.


    Ideally, it would be possible and straightforward to associate recordings
with whatever device and input they were recorded from.
