    I have a Two Tuner mce 05 with a DishNetwork (DN) Satellite with TWO echostar
    individual Receivers STB (set top box) model 311 (not that that probably
    matters).

    Per the GUIDE with using a 2 tuner MCE and 2 Satellite STB's. Is there
    anyway to know which tuner is coupled in the Guide with which STB. Because
    they seem to change, but with not reason. Of course the direct cable
    connection in the back to the stb to the mce tuner, it is always the same(of
    course), yet there doesn't seem to be a way to know which tuner is connected
    to the First Selected MCE Guide Listing(ie. if you are going to record 1
    show, something at say 2 am. Which tuner will it go thru-Tuner1 or
    Tuner2(hense STB1 or STB2? There doesn't seem to a rule. That it is always
    tuner 1 for the 1st scheduled-recorded show and sometimes it is Tuner-STB2).

    Thanks Gary, do you use it? It shows Tuner A and B and since I have the same
    tuners, they are listed as the same. Yet how do we know which A or B
    physically is? And in the "Service Type" Tuner A is listed as "Auxln1(via
    STB)" and B is "Antenna(internal)" YET, I have STB's on both and one shows an
    "Antenna." And Still how does one know which is it physically
    tied-corresponds to. So even by trial and error, I guess one could figure it
    out-I just have taken the time to figure it out,

    And I don't get what you mean by:
    STB aren't the same signal, if they were reg. antenna, then it wouldn't
    matter. Because the STB have to be on (which if left on is a waste of
    energy)(like keeping your car running in the garage for when you might want
    to use it)
