FM Radio - How do you choose which Tuner Card 7MC uses?

Hi,

My HTPC has 3 TV Tuner cards in it, all of which also have FM tuners.

What I would dearly like to know is can you choose which tuner card 7MC uses for FM broadcasts? Is there a registry hack or similar available to disable the FM tuners on the other two cards so the one I want to use is the only one available to 7MC?

*ANY* information would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Satch.

There is a way to turn tuners off in W7, I found it while setting up tv.
It's a convoluted way to get there, so I can't remember exactly, but there are boxes you can untick, twin tuner is treated as 2 tuners.
You would think they would have a seperate menu to select which tuners you want to use and setup.

I don't want to turn the tuners off completely as I use the same cards for TV broadcasts. I just want to be able to tell 7MC to use a particular card for FM tuner duties.
