The 'quick tune' you refer to is how the selection of digital streams is
done. Rather than waiting for the program table to tell it where a
stream is, it simply filters on where it should be. If all goes well,
you're looking at a few fractions of a second faster tune than normal.
This is unnecessary for scheduled recordings, and has nothing to do with
The scheduler matches channels based on number and callsign. If those
match, MythTV will assume they are the same thing, and will schedule as
such. That means it will use the first available tuner to record, which
seems to use the source with 'channel A'. If the channels are not
actually the same, name them something different. If one is higher
quality, either re-order your capture cards so it is first, or mark the
lesser quality channel as hidden.
