I'm not happy with the fact that it doesn't record, but that isn't a problem with the schedule. If I tweaked things to use two separate adaptors then it would work, but I don't know how to do that, and that would only fixing the symptoms in this instance. I would like to fix the underlying problem.
Yes, I realised that you had given the cardids just before I hit 'send',
but I left it in because I thought it might be a problem that someone
else might hit. I doubt that many people are seeing your effect,
because they all expect multirec to work and more would probably shout
loudly if it didn't.
I suggest that in 'Schedule Options' you try changing 'Use any available
input' to 'Prefer Input 3' or 'Prefer Input 4' etc as you would like it
to be, and see what happens. If it works like that you may be happy.
Otherwise I suggest deleting all your tuners and setting them up again -
or seeing if you get any other suggestions :-)

Just what you want: getting your view of the card assignments to
coincide with Myth's. Good luck!
