Lets say you display device does have a tuner, then you have to switch
from one interface to another, you loose all the mythv functionality
on top of using either a different remote, or navigating differently,
or what happens if you watching live tv on your Display, and you have
to goto the bathroom and you want to pause it. you cant, what happens
if you saw janet jackson breast pop out for 1 second and see it again?
on a regular tv you cant. so having extra tuners is always a plus,
then on those odd times you have 2 shows scheduled to record at the
same time you dont have to choose one over the other.
