Behaves that way for me!
I have 2 dvb cards. I have it globally set to start 1min earily and
end 5mins late on recordings.
If I schedule something to record on channel 1 from 20:00 till 21:00
and also on channel 2 from 21:00 till 22:00 and there are no other
recordings set, myth will only use one tuner card.
Often the end of the recording on channel 1 will be at the beginning
of the recording from channel 2.
As far as I can remember its been always been like this since 0.14
