I currently have one TV setup this way with the connections as previously mentioned. Problem I see is that both the bolt and s3 remotes can control both units (at the same time!). This may be able to be overcome, but my intention was to use the bolt for a while before upgrading the HD, while having the s3 continue to record my season passes until the upgrade or if anything didn't workout with the bolt/upgrade.I'd like to connect both devices to one TV. Each have their own cable card and I'd record separately on each. Has anyone ever done this?
I've only been using the bolt but have gone to the s3 a couple of times to check for shows not on the bolt. Suggestions are turned off, but there was some oddball shows recorded. We figure that when we are controlling the bolt, occasionally, just the right sequence is made to record things on the s3. Good luck!
