So you are collapsing all the instances of the same channel into on
visible channel in the guide.

You are seeing the channel from DVB-S2 in mythweb.

your recording rules will find the programmes on the folded DVB-T

they are not folded, so you see the DVB-T channel in mythweb

No. The channels stay independent. You are just not seeing them in
mythweb because they got folded in a way that shows the DVB-S2 "on top"
of the DVB-T channel. With an empty guide on the DVB-S2 channel it
appears as if you had no guide data for the channel.

Simple solution would be giving the channels distinct channel numbers
until you get your card back from RMA.
