The HDHomeRun dvb drivers are not so much experimental, as purpose 
built.  They are intended for use with TVHeadend, and only implement 
that which TVHeadend needs.  They are an incomplete implementation of 
the DVB API, and can cause problems with other applications.

If your PCI tuners are capable of receiving EIT data, that means they 
are digital DVB-C tuners.  Connected to the same physical DVB-C source, 
they should be sharing the Video Source in MythTV.  They may be 
different tuner types, but they use the same tuning information.  If EIT 
scanning fails for the HDHR, disable it, and let the PCI tuners pick up 
the slack.
