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-$KERNEL_VERSION build-essential
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
sudo make install
sudo make unload
sudo modprobe cx18
tar -xzvf cx18-firmware.tar.gz
sudo cp cx18-firmware/*.fw /lib/firmware/$KERNEL_VERSION/
sudo shutdown -r now
