Clarification from Frey wanter concerning 350 and 250 issues

I am very confused about what I consider to be well known issues concerning the mixing of the the PVR 350 with the newer type 16 PVR 250 cards. I believe, but have no first hand knowledge that this is the same problem as the type 15 PVR 250 with the type 16 PVR 250 card. I mention this only because my manual initialization work around also works with that problem.

Why do you need to match it with your 350? The 250 with the 16 chip on it should work fine alongside the 350. I've run that many times without problems.

Does the above quote refer to having cards in the same system?
I believe this may be referring to a network configuration.

When you say "few" is that because only a few people mix these cards? Did you say "few" because you think most people mixing these cards have no problems?

From the sage store about the 350 bundle it states:
With the upcoming release of SageTV 2.0, the PVR-350 MPEG decoder will also display the On-screen Display and User Interface of SageTV. Using SageTV and the PVR-350 you can pause Live TV, instant replay, record and search for your favorite shows. SageTV also supports multiple tuners so when you are ready to record multiple channels at once, just add a WinTV-PVR-250 or WinTV-PVR-usb2 and you are ready to go with no additional software costs.
Are you stating that version 2.0 will correct all problems with mixing PVR 350 and PVR 250 cards?
Are you able to see the problems listed below in-house or are you just relying on the posted information?

There seems to be 2 distinct problems with mixing a PVR 350 and the newest PVR 250 in the same system.

1. The loss of TV out from the 350 Card. This appears to be Sage TV specific issue. WinTV2000 outputs just fine even when getting the source from a PVR 250. Even though at one time I was able to get this to work I cannot re-create, so no work around is available.

2. After a reboot the recording from the PVR 250 is of very poor quality. I have a workarond which has worked for seval people and I have not seen any post where this work around has failed to work. It can be read at Possible initialization problem with multi-tuner cards
This appears to be a Hauppauge issue because even WinTV2000 shows this problem.
