I should have been more clear in the original post. I tried to do exactly
this, add a second capture card for the HDHR. When I selected that type of
capture card and entered the setup for it, it created a duplicate entry of
the first one, i.e. same device number [HOMERUN: 10668BF0]. I believe in
my last setup the 0 in last char of the device number changed to 1 for the
second tuner. I went ahead with the setup but when I tried to exit it told
me I had insufficiently different device names, or something like that, and
warned I should fix it.
Do the two tuners have different IP addresses or different ports on the
same IP address? I initially couldn't get the HDHR configured until I
added a firewall rule for its IP address. OTOH I don't see anything in the
UFW log about it.
