I have a 350 and 150, running 0.3.4j, and the 350 gets detected first as in 
your setup.  I've been told that for the cx25840 i2c_enable option, you don't 
need to specify a value for 250/350 cards.  So in your case it would be just 
"options cx25840 i2c_enable=1,1 no_black_magic=1"  Maybe it would even work 
with just having i2c_enable=1, I'm not sure.  I spent many hours fiddling 
with this, and this is what works for my setup:

alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
options cx25840 i2c_enable=1 no_black_magic=1
options saa7127 i2c_enable=1,-1

So for your saa7127 you're probably gonna want i2c_enable=1,-1,-1 like you 
already have.  Just try removing the excess values from the cx25840 option 
and see what happens.

Good luck,
