Oh I know that, but mythtv svn head has changed how the card is set up.
Before you would make two card entries now it seems you make only one
when entering the card in mythtv-setup. If you look at the back end
page status you do not see any reference to two tuners. Then the
simultaneous start for two shows seemed to break a lot of things.
