As an example, I have a channel that provides 5 streams, so I should be able to record all 5 at the same time, on the same tuner, rather that recording each with a separate tuner.  The channel is:

>>> Yes that is correct, You would go into each input connection in mythtv-setup where you tied Ant-1 to each of the 4 tuners, and set the virtual tuners to 3 to 5. I use 4. You will need to do this for each of the 4 input connections you defined earlier. That will let you record those multiples above on the same physical tuner.

Thanks David, I made that change.  Will I be able to see a difference in 
behavior, or will it just work better?
