Question about Sage TV, that "other brand" of "snappy" PVR software, and the HD-PVR

I have been a user of that "other brand" of snappy PVR software, but like most of them I have had tons of problems getting it to reliably run the Hauppauge HD-PVR, which I know SageTV supports.

But, I've spent money on server and client licenses for the other software, and use it reliably for OTA HD recordings.

So, what I want to know is this:

1. Can SageTV and BTV coexist on the same CPU server, with BTV handling the OTA HD recordings and SageTV handling only the HD-PVR? Needless to say, the BTV app would only be programmed to recognize the OTA HD tuners and SageTV would only be programmed to recognize HD STB sources.

2. Along with the first question, does SageTV save its HD-PVR recordings in a format that can be read by BTV? In other words, my family is used to using BTV link on our TV. As long as SageTV writes the HD-PVR recordings to a directory BTV looks at, will BTV be able to play them as if BTV made the recording? I really don't want to have to do a seperate client just for SageTV's HD-PVR recordings. I also don't use smart commercial skipping or show squeezing or anything like that. I'm really only concerned with plain-vanilla .tp recorded show capabilities, not whether or not they can read each other's .xml files and such.

Thanks for any info.
