Thanks.  I thought that was what should happen.  I had built and
installed in /usr/local since I have my distro's packaged version
(Debian) in /usr.  I think there may have been some confusion going on
having both versions on the system, even though I was calling
/usr/local/bin/mythtv-setup directly.  Anyway, I rebuilt and installed
to /usr, overwriting my packaged version and now the virtual tuners
are setup fine.  I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something
else before I did that.  Maybe tomorrow I will get a chance to try it
