Hi Bob,

If it doesn't even work with azap, then the linux-media mailing list
might be a better place to ask these sorts of questions, since it
demonstrates that it isn't a MythTV issue.

That said, I haven't tried two 950q devices at the same time, although
I cannot think of a reason why it wouldn't work.  What is the behavior
for the second adapter when running azap?  Does it show an error?
Does the tuning request go through but you never see a lock?  Does it
lock but you don't get an MPEG stream?
