It does this, but only for DVB cards.

Multirec does not allow multiple recordings for HDHomeRun or PVR250
cards. At some point in the distant future support may be added for
these cards, but right now it provides no features for the HDHomeRun
and the only benefit a PVR-250 or a firewire card receives from it
is input groups. Input groups allow you to share a single STB with
different capture modes, so you could capture channel set of channels
from the STB using a PVR-250 card and a different set of channels
using the firewire card.
