No, but I think it wouldn't be too difficult to implement. It would require
some sort of master-slave definitions, like for example:
SourceCaps = 1 S19.2E
SourceCaps = 2 SlaveTo1
SourceCaps = 3 SlaveTo1
Which means, that device 1 can receive Astra and device 2 and 3 can only tune
to muxes on the same polarisation and frequency band.
Any other suggestions for "SourceCaps"? One can think of rotating
multibeam-dishes and other exotic stuff :-) Perhaps receiving dvb-t from
different transmitters ... VDR is well suited for this kind of modification,
just modify the Dvbdevice::ProvidesSource() function to fit your needs!

But only if they are shared among at least 2 dvb-devices.
