Have you selected the option 'prefer recording over live tv' option set?
That's not the exact wording, but it's something like that. If have a
master and slave backend, both with two tuners, and I have that option set
and it always selects the last tuner in the slave backend for live tv, and
the first tuner in the master for recordings. And yes, I too manually
rearranged the tuner cardinput ID's to change mine around a bit (I have
one PVR-250 that is bad and records mangled files, that though watchable,
are not the greatest), so I can confirm that it works.
