Does "helpful" mean, "the answer I wanted, rather than a truthful/useful 
answer"?  Seems you've gotten answers to most of your questions...

(disable HPET emulation for RTC wakeup)

expects exclusive use of tuners when mythbackend is running)

and here you gave yourself the answer ("Use Slim playback profile 
group") - http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/479905#479905

Well, I'm just participating in the CBS rant while I wait for your 
support check to clear.  Once it does, I'll get right on answering your 
questions.  ;)

Not to mention the fact that I'm still waiting to see your reply to my 
"not helpful" response telling you to fix your crashed MySQL tables:  
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/487607#487607 .  When 
you tell me why that didn't work, I'll help you make it work.  I don't 
pre-emptively assume my answers fail to help--I actually wait for a 
reply that says there's still a problem.  If I don't receive one, I 
assume my reply was helpful.
