This seems odd as TVONE is on a different mux to MaoriTV, in my part
of the country anyway.

If your card can handle 4 or more channels at once under 0.25, then it
could under 0.24 too. This is a parameter in mythtv-setup and I think
the default is to set it to 2 virtual channels per tuner, so you must
have changed it from the default.
