I had the same issue occur last night after putting a new HDD in my
box and couldn't get all three cards to initialise.  Only two would
show up correctly.

I just inserted your two lines in /etc/rc.local and did a reboot and
all three cards can now be used again.  I didn't even need to
disconnect the power any amount of time.

Who do you think is responsible for this bug.  Obviously not mythTV,
but is it OS level initialisation, the drivers or the actual hardware?
 I would like to try and be pro-active and see if I can bring it to
the relevant peoples attention.
