They don't (at least not to Myth).  Myth needs a deterministic approach 
for scheduling, so if all cards are given the same priority, the card 
(technically input) with the lowest cardinputid has highest priority.

>(I wouldn't be surprised if they're 3 identical cards even). So in that case, shouldn't myth have used all 3 tuners when scheduling, thereby allowing the start and end padding to take place?
No, because the global pre-/post-roll is not meant for padding shows.  
It's meant for starting/stopping capture cards.  Search for "soft 
padding" to read about the issues involved and why it hasn't been 
changed to work like most think it should.
