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 think I found it.  Mythtv-setup > Input connections > Select an input

1 to 4.  Now in Mythfrontend: Information Center > System Status > Input 
Status > displays 16 antenna inputs

I tested with  two recordings from each of four channels, worked fine.  
Thanks everyone for the help,
