You need to set up the channels you can only get via Firewire and the channels 
you can only get as S-video as two separate sources. This ensures you don't try 
to record channels that are encrypted/not available via one or other method.

Any channels you can get both ways, you can choose to put in one or the other or 
both sources, but of course since it's the same STB only one will be available 
at any one time.
