MythTV, multiple IVTV cards

I have a MythTV backend with 4 tuners. 2 Asus Falcon2's (PVR-150 like), and an HVR1600. The HVR1600 is a dual tuner with analog and ATSC/Clear-QAM inputs.

This setup has been running for roughly 3 years, with the same issues.
/dev/video# ordering -
Upon the rare reboot, the tuners would reorder themselves. Considering the Falcon 2's use IVTV, and the HVR1600's analog tuner uses cx18, this can cause issues with MythTV. Usually I just resolved this by quickly running mythtv-setup...

To upgrade or not to upgrade...that is the question.

I've refused to upgrade my workstation at work for years for fear I'd end up with a system that doesn't run OpenBSD very well. We recently had a departure and new hire, but the timeframe between one and the other was a few weeks. In the interim, I decided to test OpenBSD on the departure's brand new machine (it wasn't exactly a "departure", but we'll leave it at that). I now know the answer to the upgrade question...

The old machine was a P4 D with 2 GB RAM and a 250 GB...

New-Comer's Greeting

Posted 02-04-2011 at 07:55 AM by xeleema (A few bits & bytes)

Greetingz and Welcome to LQ!

I would suggest you familiarize yourself with how to use LQ, which will help you in asking questions. There's a section on "how to post" (I know that sounds really, really low-brow, but hey, even I learned a lot from it).
If you already know how to use BBcode to format a post, you can just skip to the list of supported tags here.

If you've never used a Linux command line before, here's a few links to help you move around...

My first "FOSS hack"

I was mildly annoyed at the fact that LTris only lets you choose between 50, 100, 200, and no limit (as many frames as the system can render at a time) as FPS options, so I took the liberty of changing:

switch ( config.fps ) {
    case 1: fps_delay = 20; break;
    case 2: fps_delay = 10; break;
    case 3: fps_delay = 5; break;

switch ( config.fps ) {
    case 1: fps_delay = 17; break;
