[mythtv-users] Which tuner did MythTV use?

I have two HDHomeRuns (four tuners), and at least one tuner seems to be 
failing. Episodes sporadically come in clean, partially, or not at all. 
My problem is identifying the failing tuner(s). By checking which tuners 
MythTV planned to use for upcoming episodes, and comparing that with 
failed recordings, I have been able to identify one problem tuner so 
far. I need to repeat the exercise because episodes continue to fail 
unpredictably. This process takes time and causes the necessary loss of 
episodes. What would make this process faster would be if MythTV 
remembered the tuner that it used to record a program.

My question: Does MythTV in fact keep track of which tuner it used? If 
so, where in the database does it keep this information? (I could not 
find it.)

Does anyone else consider this to be useful information? Or is it so 
specialized to this one situation that it isn't worth the effort?
