Quoted from Robert Kulagowski's online documentation at 

If you have made a mistake, you can delete a card by highlighting it and 
pressing the 'D' key, or you can highlight it and press the RETURN or 
'E' key to edit it.

Note that is generally preferred to remove all tuners, and add them all 
back, if reorganizing stuff.  The order you define capture cards is the 
order the scheduler will use them, and that should be the method of 
controlling tuner selection rather than setting tuner priorities.
