Actually, best for figuring out the order used for recordings is:

SELECT cardinputid, cardid, displayname
   FROM cardinput ORDER BY cardinputid;

The SQL that Raymond gave would be best for figuring out the order that 
Live TV will use capture cards, presuming that you enable the setting, 
"Avoid conflicts between Live TV and scheduled shows."

Note that the card inputs may be connected in a different order than 
capture cards are created (i.e. to allow you to use cards for Live TV in 
one specific order--based on the reverse of the order in which cards are 
created--and use inputs for recordings in a different order--based on 
the order in which inputs are connected).  That said, chances are you 
connected inputs in the order you created the capture cards, so the 
above would likely show the same result as the query you ran.
