Likely what happened is that mythtv considered one recording more
important than the other and thus chose to put that higher priority
recording on the higher priority card, usually the first card you
configured unless you adjusted the input preference under the Input
connections in the mythtv-setup program.
In any case, if you want to know how the scheduler works you could do
worse than reading the documentation on the subject. It explains
things a lot better than I can.
