Within the MythTV setup, you set up different "sources", which are 
equivalent to different xmltv configurations - then you assign these 
sources to cards. I have 2 cards, with the same source - so myth assumes 
the 2 cards are essentially identical, so they use the same channel 
numbers etc transparently.
