I'm running with two Plextor tuners and didn't have any problems getting
/dev/dsp1 to work using the standard mythsetup approach.  One thought -
could you have more than one tuner defined and you're not getting the one
you think?

I'm running mythtv 0.20 as it was released so I suppose there is a chance
that there is some regression here.
