[linux-dvb] Two cards, one not functioning

I'm simply using the dvb-apps.  I tune one card using azap, and then use
test-dvr...it works fine.  I kill azap and test-dvr and then try the exact
same thing on the second card, it tunes, gets a signal lock, but never
captures any video.  

I'm not trying to even do it simultaneously right now, It's just one at a
time and the first one always works (device 0) and the second one never
does.
