Here's a question for you HDHR6-CC owners. If you install only one 
CableCard, can you tune virtual channels on the non-CableCard side of 
the device? That is, is the virtial channel information shared between 
the CableCard-enabled side of the device and the non-CableCard-enabled side?

Is there anyone else here in my situation? Using a HDHR3-CC along with 
one more more Classic HDHRs?
