yes, i could, i suppose. but then i'd just be adding my own anecdote
based on second- or third- hand unverified information.

this may be an unfashionable attitude but i like to actually know what
i'm talking about before making definitive statements about something.

i don't *KNOW* for a fact whether what you're saying about backends
without tuners is true.  I've just seen you saying it. and i've also
seen other people saying it works fine.  and my own experience also
says it works fine.

so anything i did write wouldn't be provably true or correct. it would
just be hearsay.

that's not the same as a definitive statement from someone who actually
knows the facts, and knows what the problem(s) (if any) are with running
BE without a tuner. it's not even close.
