Is there any way to change this for a particular tuner instead of per channel?
 I have a two tuner setup - a PVR250 (picture/color is great) and a ATI
TV-Wonder (bttv-based, picture is too bright/washed out).  I'd like to fine
tune the global picture settings for the bttv tuner, but to leave the PVR250
alone.  Can this be done somewhere?
