Hmmm. Are you sure? I have one tuner but have fiddled with my
setup alot and when I check System Status it tells me e.g.
"Tuner 14 is not recording" and that's the only tuner listed.

I thought (based on this) that every time you add a new card 
you get a new unique index number. I'm not sure I ever did
'delete all cards' so maybe that is what resets the indices?

Wouldn't rules like this break whenever you delete/add cards
or 'delete all'?

I could be wrong...

Would a useful enhancement be to have a priority field for cards?
