So, it happened again and I looked at dmesg, messages and syslog - and
there is nothing! The card is registered, gets assigned video1 and
loads the firmware, no errors, no warnings.
Anywhere else I should look?

Is it possible that the tuner is just too slow to answer right after
boot? Can I make Mythtv wait a bit?
