[mythtv-users] website down / dual channels question

I cannot be the only one noticing the website is down, surely...?
On another note, I think I may solve my two-card tuning problem by adding a
second video source (but using the same grabber) so I can add the same
channels but with the slightly different frequency...
What I cannot figure out -much less now that the documentation is unavailable-
is how to proceed in the channel editor after running mythfilldb --manual.
For clarity, this is what I want to accomplish:
SourceID Channum Name FreqID Finetune
1 1 ChannelOne 44 +12
2 ? ChannelOne 44 +28
1 2 ChannelTwo 23 -16
2 ? ChannelTwo 23 0
Now for the question: Should I set both the Channums on the (content-wise-)
identical channels to "1" and assume that mythtv will select one of the
possible sourceIDs to record from, or does that give a conflict and should I
Give the second one the channum 101 and assume that mythtv will realise that
both channels have the same content so it'll select either channel when a
scheduled recording shows that "South Park" is recordable from both channels.
In the second scenario, wouldn't selecting channel 1 in live tv give a "busy"
if that card is already recording but the second card (at 101) is free ?
In the first scenario, doesn't having equal channumbers clash horribly ?
I'm sorry if this is really just basic stuff or FAQ... Can't look at the docs
now anyway, but as I recall the two-card setups aren't that extensively
described in there to begin with. (but I hope I'm wrong about that!)
Else, is the are better way to solve this problem (being: the channel
frequencies on both cards being slightly different to each other).
Thanks in advance,
