 If it's one bridge with 4 tuners, I doubt their order will change.

 You may want to read about "device bonding", where you split one cable on two tuners so they share polarisation and
band, but may be tuned to different transponders.

 But I'm a cable user, I don't know much about it, just that there are some people out there who use it successfully. :)

Lars.
