[USRP-users] A few questions about RFNoC streaming

First things first. The flow graph you're describing don't work because the
two radio blocks will saturate the bus going into the addsub block. You
will need to decimate the streams going into the addsub block.

I don't have a ready answer to your question about the streamers, but I'd
suggest using timed commands to align the two radio streams, if UHD isn't
smart enough to recognize the two radios and propagate the stream command
