Delete all capture cards and re-create capture cards, then connect
inputs in the order you want them to be used for recording. If you set
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.
LiveTV will use the highest-numbered input. Otherwise, it will use the
first available local card with the lowest-numbered input (or something
close to that--I may not have all the details right, but it will get you
started). You seem to have "Avoid conflicts..." set because it's using
firewire (unless it's a local vs remote thing).
