That makes a lot of sense.  One way or another myth seems to expect a
consistent IP, so the moral of the story is set up tuners with fixed IP
addresses. If you don't and have the same problem as me, try to restore the
old IP address. If you can't do that then I suppose you're forced to delete
and re-add the tuner.
