A 'source' defines the channels available to a single method of tuning, plus the 
means of tuning them. Therefore, you /cannot/ use the same source for both prime 
and non-prime channels, since by definition the lists of channels available will 
be different. (If they are not, why are you bothering?)

Now, the fact that in your case the information for tuning the channels in one 
source may be made available by manipulating the tuners set up for another 
source is an entirely different matter. In principle this is no different than 
having an STB which can be accessed both using Firewire or component.
