No, it won't work. The "ignore source" option ignores just the video 
source when determing the channel the EIT belongs to. It's only useful 
for DVB-S DiseqC setups.
Both channel's original network IDs, transport IDs and service IDs have 
still to match which is highly unlikely in your case. Even if they did 
you'll only get data for one channel.
