Yep, I had a similar problem with DVB-T with different cards being
better at receiving different channels, and I'm afraid multiple input
sources is the only solution (it's the only way that Myth will
distinguish between the cards). It's a bit of a pain setting up the
multiple input sources, but works ok once done. Your problem might then
be making sure that the card you want is on the correct DVB-T number
each time you boot.
