begging everyone's indulgence, i have one last question. i have the hauppauge 2250 tv tuner card. my cable set top box is connected to it. the 2250 is supposed to be a dual tuner card which will let me watch one show while recording another (or record two shows simultaneously.) how do i do that?

right now it will only let me record the show i'm watching. is there a setting i have to change or some cable i have to connect to record on both tuners at once?

again, any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, ruthy c.

oh, btw, i'm using windows media center in windows 7.

As far as I know, what you're trying to do is not possible when using a set top box. The set top box is only sending one channel at a time to the TV tuner. I have a 2250 connected to a roof-top antenna and recording two HD shows at once works great, but that's because the 2250 is sorting out the channels on its own.
