The way I do it is to define one HDHR tuner for each tuner I want to use
from the list available. i.e. I define only 2 tuners for my HDHR quatro
because I want 2 left open for other Smart TVs, etc.
Then when defining the Input Connections. Under interactions between
inputs, I set Max Recordings to however many streams I want from a
single channel. So for me to record 23_1 and 23_2 at the same time on
the same single tuner I set the Max Recording to 2.
I haven't used that feature in a long time, but I'll test it on my dev.
system and let you know if I'm wrong.
