Keep in mind that the HDHR needs DHCP.  So a dedicated NIC on your
backend requires a DHCP server.  When you start or reboot your
backend, the DHCP server can't get the HDHR an IP address before
mythbackend starts, so mythbackend will start without recognizing your
HDHR tuners.  The workaround is to restart mythtv-backend again each
time you boot/reboot.
