This procedure assumes, to my understanding, that the tuners on the slave(s) are 
all of the same type as those on the master. What happens when the tuner types 
are different? E.g. firewire vs OTA vs satellite?

Chris, will your proposed change be able to wake up the correct slave if that 
proves necessary?
