How do you trigger this problem? I look after a MythTV system for
someone else and they have run into the problem a number of times.
I was going to test the patch out on my own system, but first I
tried to trigger the bad behaviour running without the patch,
and was unable to. My system has more tuners. Perhaps that's relevant.
