    Both my PCI DVB cards work independently but not together

    I have Ubuntu 7.10 and Mythbuntu ( latest version ). I believe all software is the latest version and the OS is bang up to date.

    I also have a Winfast DVB 1000 T PCI card. It has the Conexant CX23880 chipset and works very well with MythTV.

    In addition I have the Asus MyCinema-P7131 PCI card which has the following Philips chipsets : (i) a SAA7131E/03/06 Analogue TV device, (ii) 4052 FM radio tuner and (iii) TDA10046A DVB TV tuner.
    The TDA10046A DVB TV tuner works very well with MythTV ( though I believe there can be a problem if the firmware for it is left in place during boot ).

    The cards do not work at the same time. When the Conexant card and the Philips card are plugged into the bus the Philips card works. When the Conexant card alone is plugged into the bus the Conexant card works.

    The settings on my Myth box are as follows:
    ** Capture card set-up **
    Card type ( both cards ) : "DVB DTV capture card (v3.x)"
    DVB card number: 0 ( Conexant card )
    DVB card number: 1 ( Philips card )

    Anyone any ideas how to get both working at the same time ?
