Reading the LinuxTV wiki page (and noting the section about disabling
the PID filter) it is still not 100% clear to me whether each tuner
will pass through the whole transport stream and therefore support
mutlirec in MythTV. Are you able to confirm or deny whether this dual
tuner is multirec-capable?
