I just got my Hauppauge WinTV-DCR-2650 in the mail today.  AFAIK,
they're not really shipping yet - something about a firmware fix.  But
I got mine early to play with.  However - I stupidly forgot to order a
cablecard from Fios (AGH!) so I'm waiting on that now.

In the meantime, here's some info:

I installed hdhomerun_config_gui for kicks, and it runs & shows 2
devices in the list ([serial number]-0, [serial number]-1).  I'm
guessing those are the two tuners.

That's it for now.  I'm waiting on that cablecard.  Is there anything
else I can try in the meantime?
