Right.  "Tuners" are capture cards, whose cleanup I described in d) (and 
Raymond Wagner described another approach in his reply).

That said, Harry, we all realize that there's a lot that can be improved 
in MythTV.  We all have our own plans for things to do to help improve 
it.  We just want to keep the bug database clear of these "nice to have" 
things so that we don't lose track of important bugs that are buried 
under a bunch of "nice to haves."

See, also, 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/501796#501796 (and 
the rest of the thread) for more info--and proof that we are trying to 
work out a better approach for dealing with feature requests.
