For the first time using Myth I now have the same situation, 5 tuner
cards, 3 on the same source, and 2 others each on different sources.
Browsing LiveTV is a real bear with having to change tuners all the
time. This is mainly because I have 2 directional OTA antennas in
order to get all the channels I need in HD.
Did this change ever make it into the mainline code? Maybe there is a
setting somewhere I'm missing that would enable this functionality?
