Be aware that the cable card version does not to ATSC (over the air), and the non-cable card version does not do encryption. Also, cable companies seem to be migrating to fully encrypted systems.

You could also use the 'M' key while watching live TV to bring up a menu and choose a different tuner to use. You can then explicitly choose a tuner that is not being used for a recording.
