I'd add another:

5) Troubleshooting.  If one card starts mucking up recordings you want to know 
which one it is.

I have two identical DVB-T Nova-Ts running off a coax splitter.  One of my 
coax cables was dodgy a while back which meant that the pictures off one of 
the tuners, and working out which one it was was was a problem until the 
problem stopped being intermittent.

Saying that I've only been able to write a udev rule for the IR input for the 
cards, sorry.
