My HDHR is handled by a slave backend and I had restarted that but not the
master.  After I restarted the master 4 new tuners popped up and it's now
going to record Heroes, House and How I Met Your Mother all at the same time

I was a little bit worried about that as those channels are 8.1, 17.1 and
3.1 respectively and that didn't seem to match up with what Richard said but
when I checked the database I can see that 8.1 and 3.1 are on the same
multiplex so all is (or should be) well.

Thanks for adding this feature!
