I changed the ordering of my cards by adding the lines below into 
/etc/rc.local. Reinstalling the modules causes the adapter numbers 
re-allocated. Obviously you'll need to change the budget references to 
match the drivers for your cards.

# Make sure we use the newer TDA1004x based cards first
/sbin/rmmod budget budget-ci
/sbin/modprobe budget-ci
/sbin/modprobe budget

It also might be possible to achieve something similar with some clever 
logic in /etc/modprobe.conf.
