If you set individual recordings to end late, that will force the second
recording to run on the other card. (If you only had one card, that
configuration would cause a conflict.)

If you use the global post-roll, it is discarded and indeed both
recordings will occur on the same card.

If you record back to back shows on different channels, without starting
either recording early/late, only one card will be used. Thus you lose
the end of the first show if it runs late.
