I have two HDHRs for a total of 6 tuners. I seem to get hit with 0-byte 
whenever I see multiple program are to be recorded at the same time. 
That too precisely one file is broken and not many. So, I have a hunch 
that it is just one tuner and when it is selected, I get broken 
recording.  I do not have a proof, just a hunch. In any case, I need 
proof and I that is why I want to know the input used in the broken 

I think my tuner firmwares  are old and I need to update to the latest 
to see if the trouble goes away. However, I do not want to disturb the 
waters too much, and so, would like to know which one to update first. 
While experimenting with firmwares, I want to keep the other working so 
that I do not break everything in one shot due to errors in update.
