Actually, I did tell it to scan, but I did *not* tell it to clear the
channels first.  After telling it to clear the channels, it looks like
the scan was able to do something productive.  I don't really like the
"chanid" it picked, but I can easily adjust that.

Unfortunately, I did immediately find a problem.  When I setup the
inputs, I told each one to start on channel 5-1.  When I started
mythbackend, cards 0, 2 and 3 all successfully tuned to that channel. 
Card 1, however, failed.  I have attached the log.

When I shut down mythbackend, and re-started it, then all four cards
successfully tuned to the channel.

It is kind of scary to think it may sometimes fail to tune.  I am
running the 2.6.13 kernel.  Do you think this is a bug in the DVB
