[linux-dvb] more than one card per box

I have a pair of nova-t cards in a linux box. I can record from either
fine, and split the channels, but if I try and record both at once, the
second card always fails, I think because the second is trying to
broadcast on the same address, but the man page i have for dvbstream is
way out of date.

Even if I add options for -i and -r, I still always get

server:bind: Address already in use for the second card.

What am I doing wrong?
