Works for me with SVN from last week, and has done for years. Have you
given them 'names' in mythtv-setup? I forget the actual setting, but
you can give the tuners pseudo ID's as opposed to just a number, for
instance I have A1, A2 and H1 - H4 (2 analog and 4 digital HD) tuners,
that are numbered 36-42 according to the backend.

There was a discussion about this last week, and a number of scripts
were posted that do what you want.
