[mythtv-users] [PVR-500] Only scheduling on one tuner

Here's a weird one: I have a PVR-500, using ivtv-0.3.3z and mythtv-0.17
from ubuntu multiverse. Both tuners are recognized by ivtv, and in fact
I can watch live TV one one tuner while recording on the other, so I
know I can use both tuners simultaneously (i.e., it's not a tweaky
driver pretending there's two tuners when there's really only one).
However, for some reason, I can only seem to schedule recordings on one
tuner at a time-- when I try to schedule two shows simultaneously, I get
a conflict screen with only one show on it. When I ran mythtv-setup, I
set up one tuner as /dev/video0 with Tuner 0, and the other as
/dev/video1 with Tuner 1. I set them both up with the same video
source. I can't for the life of me figure out why myth would use both
tuners, but only let me record on one.
I had this working once, but I can't figure out what it was that I did
then that I'm not doing this time. I reinstalled mainly to prove to
myself that I did know what I was doing, but I'm definitely starting to
regret it. :)
Any clues would be most welcome.
