Well you must not be understanding, if I am reading what you say correctly, 
you have setup 2 lineups. That's not what I asked, I asked for 1 lineup and 
creating 2 sources.

To your statement, why would anyone follow the docs, well how else do you 
suggest people learn to do anything? I am not trying to be rude, only 

If you can help me understand how to setup 2 different sources while only 
using 1 lineup, than great. Please explain.
