    My TivoHD is connected up to my Cable and is doing fine with a CableCard.

    However, in my home setup, I have a satellite channel from another set-top box distributed throughout the home on an unused cable channel. This way I can watch it from any room. In my case I insert it as a channel in the 70-75 range with a notch filter/modulator combo.

    Here's my question. How to I record off the extra modulated channel?

    Scan for channels seems to be disabled due to the cablecard.
    I could move the modulated channel to a channel I don't care about (e.g. 'Oxygen') and 'pretend' to record that with manual record. However the programs have strange names depending on what was on Oxygen at that time.

    Is there any way to tell the TiVo that I've got an additional source/channel?
