I was checking the syslog and noticed that Network-Manager-Wait-Online started before, but in the same second as wait-until-pingable.  Also Mythtv Backend started after wait-until-pingable, but in the same second. mythhdhrrecorder started the devicename 0 tuner only 2 seconds later.

Also note that if you do: systemctl cat NetworkManager-wait-online, it
executes: nm-online -s... And the man page for nm-online says, in part:

     -s Wait for NetworkManager startup to complete, rather than waiting for network
     connectivity specifically.

Making the ping or hdhomerun_config a more reliable check.
