Use: man visudo to see the options. You're looking for the --file switch
and could enter a path like /etc/sudoers.d/mythtv
Personal note, if you're touching anything related to sudoers[.d/*], then
open at least one other terminal window and type: sudo -i in it. That way
you can recover from errors you make (I made) when editing, although my
1st attempt was without visudo. Test from another window with: sudo -k
and then sudo -i. You don't want to disable the sudo command, even though
it's possible to recover from it.
