Digital tuners allow simultaneous capture of multiple virtual channels 
within a single physical multiplex.  In order to handle this capability, 
MythTV implements 'virtual tuners', where one physical card shows up 
multiple times.  MythTV allows up to five virtual tuners per physical 
tuner, and defaults to two.
