Yes I am all setup in mythtvsetup and I have adapter0 and adapter1 (and
corresponding /dev/dvb/adapter/0,1).  DVBSky 952v3

I left everything default (e.g. 2 virtual tuners) apart from setting both
tuners to use LNB.

The kernel should have support for this card but I am wondering if it is
broken as you can tune the 2nd (adapter1) tuner in mythtvsetup but at some
point MythTV decides it no longer can see it and even mythtvsetup can't
access adapter1 but it is still visible in /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0, dvr0,
frontend0 and net0 even after a restart of the PC.  I have tried swapping
the "aerial" cables and still adapter0 works and adapter1 doesn't - so not
an "aerial" problem.  Tuner 1 (adapter0) seems to be rock solid.

Any pointers on what I could try next would be great.
