A-ha!  That's fixed it!

I'd misiniterpreted the documentation and had configured a different source 
for each DVB card.  I just deleted two of the sources and assigned the 
remaining one to all three DVB cards, deleted all the channels that used the 
deleted sources and now I can record three programmes simultaneously.  Woo 

I have, unfortunately, seemed to have lost the programme guide data for at 
least one of my channels.  I'm using the EPG feature rather than xmltv.  Do I 
have to manually do something to make mythtv extract the EPG data for the 
channels or will it do it by itself as the EPG data is broadcast?

Many thanks for your help! :-)
