I've only got one tuner, so it's not something that's bothered me 
yet. But how did you add your tuners ? IIRC from a message some time 
ago, recordings favour the lowest numbered tuners - so it depends 
whether you add a single tuner, then another single tuner, and then 
go back and enable multirec; or add one tuner with multirec and then 
add the other with multirec.
