[mythtv-users] HVR-2250 blue recordings

I have the same tuner ... running fedora 14 (64bit) ... I also have a 
dedicated analog tuner (PVR150) with the 2250 so the 2250 (both tuners) 
is dedicated to digital only. I did notice that running the myth-setup 
missed up the 2250 tuners sometimes ... simple reboot fixed it.

> I also found that in 'watch live tv' analog input 0 and digital input 0 seem always OK, yet digital input 1 can't tune and gives me a blue picture until I switch to analog 1, tune it to a differnet analog channel, then switch back to digital 1. It can then tune the channel it couldn't before.
> Has anyone else with an HVR-2250 had this experience?  Is this a known mythtv bug? I don't think its a hardware issue as I can get all the tuners working fine outside of mythtv.
