Usually you connect the same source to the second tuner (using
multiswitch) or in case nothing like that exist you could use
channelbonding, using both tuner at the same cable with some additional
hardware for a few dollar. Having different sattelites on different
tuners is a bit unusual, but possibly you could configure that by using
the ca value in the channels.conf - or checking the dynamite plugin
which resently got added something like that. I believe there has been
recently posted some basic plugin which could be adapted to what you
want as well. (would need to search for it)
