i've found that if you type a channel number which would cause you to 
move to another "card" it will do so.
however, it won't change input. so if i am watch analogue cable on card 
1 and type 53 (which should take me to s-video on card 3) it will change 
to card 3, but on the Tuner-1 instead of S-Video.
not the same problem, but in the same area
