You can only use one tuner at a time. Firewire will only display what
you're watching. Kinda makes the dual tuner useless when using myth.
I'm actually thinking of adding a second firewire cable to help overcome
the Node ID switching. I've got to find a period where I'll be home and
have time to play without messing up my recordings. I'll send an update
once I've tested.
