Nice to know.  I inadvertently did this myself.

The MythTV wiki for the HVR-1600 (
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Hauppauge_HVR-1600#Backend_Setup) says to,
"Change Max recordings to 1, since this card can only record one thing at a
time." so I did this at first since I didn't know any better at the time.
I also did this for my HVR-950Q.  Later, when I realized that this was
wrong, I changed them both back to 2.

Should I "delete" both tuners and add them back in?
