OK, just make sure I understood the connect then change to 4 virtuals part. I deleted all capture cards. I then added all my HDHRs in one at a time, leaving max recording set to 2, adding the OTA HDHR last. I then went to Input Connections, connected HDHR Unit 1, TUner 0 to Source 1, then went back to Capture Cards and changed HDHR Unit 1, TUner 0's Max Recordings to 4. I then went back to Input Connections and connected HDHR Unit 1, Tuner 1 to Source 1, then went back to Capture Cards and set HDHR Unit 1, Tuner 1 and set Max Recordings to 4. And so on. Is this what you meant?
