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:
> Channel 23_1 on Freq 22 called ION
> Channel 23_2 on Freq 22 called Qubo
> Channel 23_3 on Freq 22 called Shop
> Channel 23_5 on Freq 22 called QVC
> Channel 23_6 on Freq 22 called HSN

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. 

I am not sure exactly where the setting is, as I have to explore through the menus in the input connections setup when I have had to make changes.
