I want to capture two pipes simulatneously with wireshark. Wehn i'm capturing only one of the pipes, everything works fine, but when i try to combine the two to capture both at the same time, one of them breaks the lua-script of the other one.

To be more precise, one of the pipes is created by the nRF Sniffer Software from Nordic, the other one is created by a self-made program to sniff an other 802.15.4 WPAN. Each of those programs open wireshark automaticly after creating the pipe. I've tried to add the other pipe after i opend wireshark with one of the programs vie "Manage Interfaces" in the "Capture Options".

Does anyone know why this happens or how to solve this problem? Is it even possible?

You should have a look at using the Wireshark extcap interface.

The upcoming 2.0 version of the nRF Sniffer uses extcap and so should your self-made program do. Have a look in the downloads page in the nRF Sniffer page for a 2.0-beta release.
