Ah, I'll take a look at that tvchain table, then!

Although I don't think it contains any information about on what card
it's tuned. Sure, it has an "input" field, but that's not really telling

I'm looking for a better way for MythTV to detect in-use cards (as it's
currently ignoring multirec, I believe it just detects them as fully
free cards)
