Thanks Mike!  I thought I had that in place already, but apparently I 
didn't.  I just setup a script to run under /etc/cron.daily.  Not to 
sound too dense (and venture slightly off-topic), but what would be the 
best way to go about having the log emailed to me after it runs?  I'm 
sure that most of the time the log would be OK, but if there IS a 
problem, I'd like to be able to catch it early.

As a side note, I restarted my backend server earlier and I still got 
Card 5failed init and Card 4failed init messages for my 2 HDHR tuners.  
I went to my Windows box and made sure I could tune them via VLC, then 
went to my Myth box and ran mythtv-setup.  It could see them there, so I 
exited back out and when the backend restarted, they were there.  Not 
sure what was up with that, but they're back now.

Thanks for the help!
