Delete all your existing tuners, and add your HDHR back using the serial 
number found on the bottom of the device.  MythTV will auto-detect your 
HDHR, regardless of what IP address was handed out by your DHCP server.

If you continue using direct IP assignment of the HDHR in MythTV, you 
will only be able to access the first tuner.  If you tell MythTV to use 
the second tuner through a direct IP address, it will still only access 
the first tuner, due to a flaw in MythTV, and you will end up with 
resource conflicts and failed recordings.
