Arg! I don't know how I ended up thinking the 1034 had dual tuners!!
Perhaps "twin" in the manufacturer's name gave me that idea in the
first place, but after all the research I did on this model I would
have thought I'd have realised my mistake at some point!! :(
Looking at  suggests that the only DVB-S card with twin tuner
(marked on that list as "Sat in x 2") is the DVICO FusionHDTV DVB-S
 but this doesn't seem readily available, nor is it listed as
MythTV-compatible  
So I guess for my purposes - watching free UK satellite TV - then I'm
simply best buying Hauppauge Nova-S card(s). I'll need to use more
PCI slots to get if I want to record & view different channels
simultaneously, but the Hauppauge are easy to get hold of and I'm
guessing they're also well-supported?
