You may get additional debug info if you add the "record,channel,file"
logging options to your backend's logfile whilst you are investigating
this problem.

You could also check the syslog after boot to make sure the two
PVR-350 cards are being detected correctly and are finding and loading
the correct firmware, and check dmesg during recordings to make suer
there are no kernel-related messages being emitted.
