I ran into this after moving one of my HDHR tuners to a slave 
backend. The reason was that the frontend was trying to default to 
using that tuner for live TV.

I was able to work around this by removing and re-adding the tuner 
(input) I wanted to be used by default (in mythtv-setup). It seems 
that the last input in the list is always used when you start live TV.

There's no need to re-add the card or the channel lineups; just the input.
