I have the 2250 and a Ceton card in the same backend. Only once,
after screwing around with setting up the Ceton card did I have a
situation where the 2nd tuner would not function properly but the 1st
would. A reboot fixed the problem and I can't really offer any other
advice. This card has been rock solid for me.
