Are you sure this works?  My two backends seem
to prefer the card that appears second in the list of cards.

In the CaptureCard Table
Card 1 is in master
Card 2 is in slave

Similarly, in the CardInput table
The first Cardinput points to capturecard 1
The second Cardinput points to Capturecard 2

And the first card selected for live tv is capturecare 2 in the slave.

I'd like to reverse that some how....
