Old description:

> Auto-detection of HDHomeRun tuners only works when the tuner and backend
> exist on the same logical subnet.  If mythbackend exists on a separate
> network across a router, or has a different broadcast address for
> whatever reason, the tuner must be configured manually with the IP
> address.  When doing so, both tuners cannot be used simultaneously.
> When a connection to the second tuner is initiated, the connection to the
> first tuner is lost.  MythTV will continue to think it is recording on
> the first tuner until the scheduled end of the show, or the termination
> of the livetv session.  Teardown of the first tuner will subsequently
> cause the loss of connection to the second tuner.

New description:

 When accessing the HDHomeRun using a manual IP address rather than
 autodetection, the second tuner is not accessible.  Setting MythTV to use
 the second tuner will be ignored, and it will access the first anyway.  If
 MythTV is already using the first tuner, the existing recording will be
 silently disconnected.
