I had a similar problem with my 3 freecom dvb-t usb devices. They changed
priority, even occasionally one would not load or pick up a signal (all on
the same feed and show the same signal strength on the same channel etc),.
and I experimented and tore my hair out for ages. The fix for me was to open
the cards on startup,  not on demand in myth-setup. I  never thought of it
for ages as the problem started when I changed to udev.

may not fix your problem but it's worth a go, and I've never seen anyone
else suggest it.
