you need to press the 'Y' key to change between cards while watching live tv. 

it took me a week to work that one out  :(

I have the same situation. I have two DVB cards and one analog. If I set
mythtv up with the two DVBs then I can use both well. If I set up only the
analog card then all is well as well.

If I set up both then I can tune to only digital or only analog (I think
it depends on the definition order).

BTW, To avoid repeating the setup, I take a mysql dump at some point,
then restore it before finishing the setup. I think this should be valid.
