[mythtv-users] Switch OTA antenna per tuner?

I was wondering if there is a way to switch OTA antenna on a per tuner basis?

On the software side it looks like for some tuner types that could probably be doable 
by using the channel changer functionality (For example, if there is a switch to 
channel 2, switch to annenna 1, if there is a switch to channel 33 switch to antenna 
2, etc...) but is there actual hardware that exist to do that for more than one 
antenna (2 or 3) and for more than one tuner...

I have seen an infrared switch that does that 
(http://antennasdirect.com/rotators.html) but only for one tuner and 2 antennas, is 
there something that supports more than one tuner and possibly 3 antennas?

The other solution would be to combine antennas but that iself has its own problems 
(multipath, etc...).

Thank you!
