[mythtv-users] controlling order of tuner card detection?

Sometimes, my tuner cards are detected and thus assigned to /dev/videoX 
numbers in different orders - this wouldn't be an issue except that they 
have very different connections and features.  Right now, I've got a 
pvr-150 with both cable and video-in and a hd5500 with qam and backup 
cable in - if they get detected in the wrong order, /dev/video doesn't 
have an mpeg encoder, doesn't have an attached cable box to video0, and 
gets darn nasty reception.  I've been planning to replace the 150 with a 
500, but I'm nervous that it'll make things even worse...

Is there any way to force detection to proceed in bus-order, presumably 
not changing unless I swap cards?
