Oh man. I finally figured out that that option is in the Input
connections. Very confusing. I found that I had to do things in the
correct order. That is, a) add a capture card for the new HDHR's tuner
0, b) Set up it's Input connection with the Max recordings of 2 (which
causes the second capturecard record to get created) and then c)
repeat steps a and b for tuner 1.

Sorry for the noise.
