I had a problem like this a long time ago, and if memory serves there
wasn't an option as such. The selection priority was at the time
selected by order of adding the card to the database. So you might have
to toss your current card setup and do it again, setting up the DVB-T
card first.

Again, very historical and from memory, so this may not currently be, or
ever have been, true. :) You may wish to wait and see if anyone else has
a better answer.
