Comment(by mikeb at silicondust.com):

 The patch has a few bugs which seem to be inherited from the original
 mythtv code.

  * Whenever possible, use the hdhomerun_device helper functions rather
 than attempting to parse the result from the hdhomerun directly. The
 current code fails to parse the signal strength correctly if a dBmV value
 is returned (TECH versions).

  * Avoid calling hdhomerun_control or hdhomerun_video; access to these
 functions should be done through the similarly named hdhomerun_device
 calls; the main advantage is this will allow the backend to be started
 before the network and the control socket reconnected as needed.

 The HDHRStreamHandler::Open(), !FindDevice(), Connect() sequence is just
 silly; once you have a hdhomerun_device object you're done.
