In mythtv-setup -> Capture Card you will add 2 tuners for a HDHR Connect 
Duo. Each entry will be the same. Select HDHR as the type of tuner and 
click the box for the IP and id number of the one it finds. You may or 
may not want to disable the active EIT use which keeps that tuner from 
being used by anyone else, like an iPad.

The second tuner will be added exactly the same.  Then when your Video 
source configured, usually outside of mythtv, you'll move on to Input 
Connections. You'll have 2 to fill out. Only need to run scan on the 
first.  You may or may not want to change the max recordings in the 
Interaction between tuners.
