I *think* that MythTV uses either cardid order or even the physical
order of entries in the database table for Live TV. I have manually
exchanged all fields of row 1 (cardid 1) with row 3 (cardid 3) in the
table (all but the cardid field itself, of course) to let Live TV prefer
the PVR 150 instead of a bt8x8 card.
