    I hadn't because I thought since they share the
    same antenna they would use the same channel
    source details. I thought tuning to "ABC Sydney"
    on either card would pick up a single PID.

    I fired up mythtv-setup and, you are right, you can
    specify which card to use during the "scan" so I
    tried another scan... but I can't really see what
    to do next... presumably it finds the same channels
    but after that... do I need to do something to associate
    them with a channel number ?

    For example, if my first Nova-T DVB-T card has
    tuned to "ABC Sydney" and I've associated that
    with channel number 2, then my second card
    (the AverMedia AverTV USB 2.0 DVB-T) card
    scans and finds "ABC Sydney" and I want it to
    be associated with channel number 2 regardless
    of which card I'm viewing through... do I need
    to do anything more ?

    I'm fairly confused I have to admit!

    Also, full scans never seem to work here in Sydney, Australia.
    I always have to manually enter the transport frequencies and
    then use "scan existing transports" to find any channels.

    Any words of wisdom much appreciated.
