My priority list:
1) HD3000
2) PVR150
3) Firewire DCT6200

so I assume livetv works backwards through the list, except that when I'm in
livetv on the DCT6200 and hit the tuner change button it goes to my HD3000
next, then the PVR150. I assume this is due to the priority for the next
scheduled recording and trying to avoid that tuner. But since my HD3000 only
gets like 8 channels it would be nice to be able to tell Myth not to use it
as a general livetv tuner unless I specificly tune to one of the channels it
does receive (ie an HDTV channel).
