What is the order of your tuner cards?

I think there's a option on the backend settings to avoid conflicts
between LiveTV and recordings which causes mythtv to choose the
highest numbered tuner card (ie the one you added last) for LiveTV.

If the above seems to be true (and it's a long time since I used
LiveTV) and your cards are in the wrong order you can drop all tuner
cards and reenter them in the correct order, which should not affect
anything else in the database (but backup first to be safe).
