During the night I thought of something I need to checkout further
on the channel changing problem...

I loaded a PVR250 as the 3rd tuner card, also loading their
msp3400 module.  The problem I'm finding with the 2 401 cards
might be related to this new module.  Tonight I'll have to
unload this module and revert to the standard and see if
that fixes this problem...
