The problem is that Mythtv opens both tuners at the same time, but it
should not. It treats the card as there where 2 cards, and not just one.
As sad above, there is one DVB-T tuner, and one DVB-S tuner, but as per
l4v drivers, only one can be used at time. So Myth should use only one
at time, but opens both. Can I tell myth to use only one tuner at time?
