Ah huh. i think i get it.

So if your recording it uses one tv tunner no matter what.

but if you watching the same mux as ur recording it uses 2. but i can watch something from that mux and not have to use another?

thats pretty cool. is that why there is 2 plugs in the back of hte card? can i just split one cable and run the 2 in?

thanks for all your help :D

If you're meaning the backplate of the HVR-2200 card, then one is for the FM radio stations. Both tuners on the card use the same aerial input.

Not quite, think no difference between watching and recording! The digital channels are just streams of data. so even if you're watching TV you're recording and palying it back at the same time, that's how time shifting works. i.e. you're watching TV then you pause it to make a coffee then come back and hit play; you're watching recorded TV. So you can watch/record all the channels on the same MUX. and if you have 2 tuners (HVR2200) watch/record all the channels on 2 MUXs!

Have you had look at MediaPortal? Come join the NZ thread at the MP forums. :)
