Greg I can verify your issues.  I did a kernel update last night and
lost my 1600 and my secondary backend became unavailable.  The issue
was the mythtv-backend process was failing to run.  When I looked at
the log entry I noticed it complained about the 1600 tuner not
existing.  This reminded me I had to do Steps 1 and 2 of the Wiki page
that you have linked.  Upon running Steps 1 and 2 and restarting the
system things worked again as they should have.

For me I suffer from having dropped frames on my first analog capture
after a restart so I also scheduled a 'junk' recording to clear up
that little bug.

Below are the exact steps I took:

sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-$KERNEL_VERSION build-essential

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

cd v4l-dvb


sudo make install

sudo make unload

sudo modprobe cx18

wget http://dl.ivtvdriver.org/ivtv/firmware/cx18-firmware.tar.gz

tar -xzvf cx18-firmware.tar.gz

sudo cp cx18-firmware/*.fw /lib/firmware/$KERNEL_VERSION/

sudo shutdown -r now
