I unfortunatly missed half the discussion, but for two frontends to 
work, you need a dual-tuner card. I currently have a Terratec Cynergy 
dual T PCI-e card, that has two tuners that can be individually be 
controlled with dvb-fe-tool. I think the name dual-tuner is actually 
wrong, as it should be dual-frontend, tripple tuner in my case. One 
front-end can be connected to DVB-T-tuner Or Analogue TV-tuner 
(currently not working afaik) and the second frontend can be connected 
to a different DVB-T-tuner Or DVB-C-tuner.

Check the output of dvb-fe-tool and see what it outputs. Or, your driver 
is bugged/manufacturer lied about it's actual capabilities!
