i explained why in another email - but for the record

i have 4 cards and the following lineup:

card 1 - tuner   - source 1
card 1 - s-video - source 2
card 2 - tuner   - source 1
card 3 - tuner   - source 1
card 3 - s-video - source 3
card 4 - tuner   - source 1
card 4 - s-video - source 3

what i really would want is to name sources and have a key to cycle
through them (plus the ability to order and define a priority). i really
don't care if i'm getting a program from source 3 on card 3 or card 4. i
do sort of care that i'm getting a program from source 1 on card 1; as
that removes the ability for someone else to watch a program from source 2
(of which i only have one source).

maybe this is way too complicated a scheme, but i'm sure that my setup is
by on means as complicated as some people on this list.

because it doesn't tell me which card and that is important for the reason 
stated above
