Comment(by skerit at kipdola.com):

 I've tried to tackle this problem in the source, but I'm afraid I can't
 learn C++ and get acquainted with the MythtV source files that quick. To
 prove that we'r enot crazy, and that this is a big problem, I'll give you
 a detailed description of the problem:

 There are 3 capture cards and 15 virtual tuners.

 Tuner 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for capture card A (Astra 2, 3)
 Tuner 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 for capture card B (Astra 1)
 Tuner 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 for capture card C (Astra 1, 2, 3)

 When I start my first LiveTV instance, it tunes to an Astra 1 channel on
 tuner 15

 When I start my second LiveTV instance, it tunes to the same channel. It
 does this on the same card, but on tuner 14 (which is kind of a waste, but
 still, it's good)

 I can switch to every channel on this multiplex. Yay.

 Then, I go to the Program Guide. I want to switch to another channel, also
 on Astra 1, but on a different multiplex.
 It starts to make the switch, but it fails, and retunes the first channel.

 I try to tune a channel on Astra 2, but since it's also on this capture
 card, it doesn't think it needs to make the switch, and just fails.

 So, what's happening? MythTV considers these virtual tuners to be real
 tuners. They're either available for every channel or they're not
 available at all, it has no in between.
