Dual Tuners - cannot record simultaneous programs (1 Viewer)

I have installed a Kworld dual tuner DVB-T 399U (USB) with the latest Windows 7 certified driver and MediaPortal V1.1.2. Both tuners are visible and mapped in MP.

I can select simultaneous programs for recording in the Program Guide, but only one program is recorded.

Solutions or suggestions are most welcome.

    Are all of the channels available/mapped to both tuners ? (e.g run the channel scanning on both tuners in TV server config)

    (I use exactly the same tuner myself, so I know it works OK with MP)

    Thank you everyone. Problem resolved.

    All the steps suggested above had been done, but even though I hadn't set timeshifting\recording folders for both tuners, both showed the same default directory.

    After I clicked the button to "use the same directory for both tuners" everything worked.

    Many thanks again
