[mythtv-users] HD-PVR Priming Script?

I don't know if it's definitely the case with the HD-PVR, but it's 
possible that the reason Myth fails to recognize the device after it is 
reset is that it is treated like a second instance. This would create a 
new /dev/videoX device. If this is the case, then you might be able to 
work around the problem with a udev rule that creates a symlink with a 
constant name to whatever device gets created. You would then point Myth 
to the symlink instead of the videoX device.

You could confirm this using `ls /dev/video*` before and after resetting 
the HD-PVR.

It might also help if you "rmmod" the driver after unplugging the HD-PVR.
