What sources are your signals ? Did you add both cards (inputs) to one source ?

Simply, and it's come up several times recently here, you define two 
sources - one with the Nova as an input, one with the Pinnacle as an 
input. Scan for channels on both.
Each source now has access to the channels it detected during the 
scan - if there's some you don't want to use, then either delete them 
or mark them as not visible in the channel editor (or using an SQL 

The rest should now happen automagically.
