 The DVB device path in mythtv-setup is a pulldown menu without free text
 edit option.

 This is problematic when you use multiple DVB devices. At boot these get
 assigned random values. The zeroth (adapter0) can swap places with the
 first (adapter1), for example. The outcome is erratic if the cards don't
 share the same DVB source on their physical input.

 Even if you setup per device symlinks; You cannot point mythtv to the
 right device through mythtv-setup, the regular configuration method.

 Other recording device types do allow free text editing for the device
