Delete all capture cards and re-create capture cards, then connect
inputs in the order you want them to be used for recording.  If you set
the option:

Avoid conflicts between live TV and scheduled shows.
If enabled, live TV will choose a tuner card that is less likely to have
scheduled recordings rather than the best card available.

LiveTV will use the highest-numbered input.  Otherwise, it will use the
first available local card with the lowest-numbered input (or something
close to that--I may not have all the details right, but it will get you
started).  You seem to have "Avoid conflicts..." set because it's using
firewire (unless it's a local vs remote thing).
