I've got hybrid cards that work the same.

What I did was to set the parentid on the analog portion to the cardid of
the dvb portion in the capturecard table in the database ( update
capturecard set parentid=x where cardid=y; ).  I then had to go into setup
and set the source on the now child analog card.

Now Myth understands that the cards are linked and won't try and use them at
the same time.
