[mythtv-users] Backend Upstart howto

I've been having the problem that whenever I restarted by master backend 
server, mythbackend would start without the tuners being available. This 
was the case because my tuners take a long time to initialise given that 
various bits of firmware need to be loaded and all manner of calibration 
appears to be required (according to dmesg).

I finally found the time to solve this problem properly: determine which 
events are emitted when tuner initialisation completes, and add these to 
the 'start on' stanza in /etc/init/mythtv-backend.conf .

I've done a writeup on the wiki[1]; please review and augment as required.
