Ok, there is a input wizard in the pluto setup. Go to AV then pick your room then, go to the tv, av properties. Here you want to go to the inputs part and next to the input that has your live tv connection (the input which you want to switch to in order to use the cable box, can be same as pvr/linuxmce.) in the drop down menu choose live tv and the connection you used to plug it in with. For me it was the same input that i hooked dvi-hdmi into for my media director. Once i picked this input for my live tv i was able to set another for direct tv and wah-lah, im able to record and watch tv at the same time with one pvr switching inputs (not sure if thats how your supposed to do it but mine looks better when switching to live). Make sure things are set right in the connection wizard, i also noticed that you must quick reload every time you change one of these things in order to see the changes completely(also connection wizard doesn't work as well for initial setup, setup wizard works perfectly for main connections then the connection wizard is handy for tweaking). Feel free to pm me if you can't figure it out, get ready for alot of fiddling, it's worth it though, 5 buttons does everything and technically your not lazy just lucky and smart enough some crazy smart person made it.
