The only way to do this (without resorting to editing the DB directly)
is to use the 'Delete All Capture Cards' portion of Mike's
comprehensive and oft-quoted post (which he quotes earlier in the
thread). This resets the card count by truncating the DB table - if
you just delete a single capture card, counting is not reset and uses
the next auto-increment value.

I am working on a patch to add funcitonality to mythfilldatabase to
allow a user to easily remove all listings data without having to
resort to reconfiguring video sources via mythtv-setup.
