Right, because ivtv changed the input names,,,

This means that you deleted just the cards 1&2 on that
host. Then you re-added them as the next higher numbers
after 3.

You need to "(Delete all capture cards)". Then re-add all
cards in the order that you would prefer. Depending on your
resources and signal quality, you may want to consider putting
1 and 2 on opposite machines so it only doubles up when there
are three recordings at the same time. But whatever your
reasoning, enter them in the order of your default preference.
