I suspect the only way to do what you want is to set up another, independant, back end. On that
you'd have one source containing only the channels of interest. Don't forget to remove those
channels from your other backend! Done that way you can turn off the duplicate tests and record
whatever you want.

Or, now you have two backends, record one channel on one backend and the other on the other.

Either way, you would need to import the recordings to your main box (as videos) to view them.
