I haven't tested this yet. But this solution was the one favoured by CT 
to solve the problem of the FF cards not having enough bandwidth to 
handle live viewing and recording at the same time.

The DVB-C FF card will never record in a DVB-S system. I assumed that 
you could view live TV via transfer mode from a DVB-S card.

I have a DVB-C FF card laid around here. Guess I need to try it.

I've never been in the situation that there was no DVB device
left for live TV. But I do regularly miss bits of recordings, especially 
when they overlap.
