on the card)?

Thanks for the quick reply.. I have it currently set up like that but the
problem is whenever I try to goto the channels of another input card, it
won't switch to it, is it supposed to?
My setup will consist of one satellite with ONLY Hindi channels (S-video
on card A), one satellite with ALL channels (including Hindi, allowing two
Hindi recordings at once, S-video on card B), and cable (Tuner on A and
B). Right now however, I have just tried using a tuner on card B, and
Hindi channels (in the 600 range) on A. The tuner channels only go up to
around 115 so I know they are not colliding. When I startup MythTV, card
B comes up by default and I have no way of getting to the Hindi channels
on A. If i goto the guide, I can see the Hindi channels on the 600 range,
but if I try to tune to them, it won't do anything.
All I really need is the functionality you speak of, just being able to
change to a channel on another input card, but I can't seem to get that to
