No. Its just means that cards that report themselves as cx88 will be
assigned the numbers indicated. In the random order that they willbecome
ready the first card ready will be allocated the lowest number allowed for
that chipset. If they all have the same input source this probably won't
matter, and this method works for me where I have a novat500 a peak dvbT.
And a nova S2 hd card. ( in total 2 dual tuner dvbt cards and a single tuner
dvbS2 card).

It didn't matter when there were just two NovaT's but now
