When looking at the mythtv backend available cards list, the only select for
the second card is the analog V4L interface.  The dvb card definition does
not appear, like my first card has.  I would assume the second card, after
rebooting the system, should produce a /dev/dvb/adaptor1 directory which is
not there.
