Perhaps I misunderstood.  The Quatro has four tuners in one box, using 
one IP address, and one device ID.  Do I actually have only two capture 
cards (HDPVR and HDHOMERUN)?  Here's what I created, what do I need to 

Capture cards >
HDPVR: /dev/video0
HDHOMERUN: 10722347
HDHOMERUN: 10722347
HDHOMERUN: 10722347
HDHOMERUN: 10722347

Video Sources >

Input Connections >
[HDPVR: /dev/video0] (Component) -> HdPvr
[HDHOMERUN: 10722347] (MPEG2TS) -> Ant-1
[HDHOMERUN: 10722347] (MPEG2TS) -> Ant-2
[HDHOMERUN: 10722347] (MPEG2TS) -> Ant-3
[HDHOMERUN: 10722347] (MPEG2TS) -> Ant-4
