In mythtv-setup, in the card setup screen there should be a big wide 
button labeled "Recording Options". Click it and you get the option to 
set the number of simultaneous recordings. Make sure it's > 1. (This is 
just like the DVB multirec setup)

After this, the mythfrontend tuner status page (Information Center -> 
System Status -> Tuner Status) should show multiple Tuners for each 
physical "{hdhr id}-{tuner #}" tuner. In my case I have 1 HDHR with the 
above option set to 3, so I have 6 total HDHR virtual tuners.
