Sounds like the expected behaviour when you have configured a digital
tuner with multirec set for 2 (the default if you don't explicitly
change the setting) concurrent recordings. Nothing to worry about.

Both "virtual" tuners share the same physical tuner, hence the reason
why changing tuning parameters affects all entries associated with the
physical tuner.
