As far as Myth is concerned, you were recording whatever was on your
"live tv" session.  If you look at your manage recordings screen, there
will be an in progress entry for whatever you were watching when the
frontend crashed.  If you cancel this, you will free up the tuner and be
able to watch live tv again.

If you can not find an in progress recording (be sure to check the filter
settings so you are viewing "all recordings"), a restart of the backend
process will most likely free up the tuner.....
