Unless you are in the extremely odd situation of using *exactly* the 
same lineup for both, this should not be a problem. If you have only one 
lineup at Schedules Direct, then myth treats all of the tuners using the 
lineup as equivalent. This is actually unlikely, unless you are still in 
'testing'. You will need 2 lineups.

If you have an analog lineup and a digital lineup, each channel should 
appear *twice*, unless you differentiate them by *channel name*. Usually 
an upgrade to the HDHR level means an upgrade to HD and the channel name 
will likely be different. All my OTA channels have an HD added to the 
channel name, so that WGRZ on analog cable, and WGRZ-HD on OTA, are two 
distinct channels. Use the channel editor if necessary.

2 lineups to separate them by tuner.
Different names to avoid them being confused with each other -> two 
listings in the guide.

Then select and set each show to record TWICE.

Watch out for carpel tunnel RSI in your thumb!.
