    Can you use dual receiver's with dual-tuners in MCE2005? I have the option of
    dual receivers or 2 single receivers with Dish TV, and the dual receivers
    would take less space, but I am not sure how to configure it with MCE2005
    with dual-tuner support?

    Thanks,
    Shaun

    You need to have two paths to receive the output from the two STBs, Either
    two separate tuner cards or a dual tuner card. The NVIDIA NVTV dual tuner
    card has 2 S-Video &audio inputs on the card. With the Hauppauge 500 dual
    tuner card you have to have a daughter card which takes an extra slot to get
    the second S-Video/audio input connection.
    The IR receiver comes with 2 IR blasters one for each of your STBs and MCE
    decides which one to use since it also decides which STB to use.
