I have 4 tuner cards, and they all use the same zap2it source. There is 
nothing that says you can't use the same source twice, so I defined 4 
sources in Myth, with the same datadirect account info, and connected 
them via the 4 different inputs I'm using. That might get you closer to 
what you want.
