Myth will first choose the lowest-numbered input (cardinputid)
associated with the video source on a local capture card, if available.
If there are no available local cards, it will use the lowest numbered
input available on a remote backend. If no inputs are available
anywhere, it will tell you.
However, if you select the option:
Avoid conflicts between live TV and scheduled shows.
If enabled, live TV will choose a tuner card that is less likely to have
scheduled recordings rather than the best card available.
Myth will always choose the lowest-priority (I think, but may actually
just be highest cardinputid) input available.

Sounds like you've enabled the "avoid conflicts" option.
