The simplest solution for you may be to add the
following line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

options ivtv ivtv_first_minor=1

That will make all ivtv cards (Hauppauge) start at
video1.  If your ATI HD card is the DVB card, it
doesn't use ivtv, so it will take video0.  (I have the
PCHDTV-5500 and this trick has worked for me with that
card plus a Hauppauge PVR-500.)

If this doesn't work then you'll need to look at udev rules...
