This is a problem with the Mythbuntu theme, I think. You could try 
changing your frontend to a different theme then restarting mythwelcome 
(mythwelcome will then use the same theme as mythfrontend). There are a 
few bugs with the mythbuntu theme, unfortunately.

I agree it would be nice to use a bit more space showing more 
simultaneous tuners. I think the current method is hard-wired into 
mythwelcome so cannot be easily changed by tweaking a theme for example. 
Just in case you're not aware, you can see the status of all your tuners 
on one screen in mythfrontend System Status screen, or on mythweb.
