Thanks so much for the quick response.  That all makes perfect sense
when you put it that way!

One last thing I've noticed is that when I "copied" the third tuner

tuner as available in the backend status and mythweb, but I cannot
switch to it manually in my frontends.  Maybe I need another setting
