Hi All,
     I've got a dual tv tuner card I'm using with mythtv. The problem I 
have is at boot time, despite webcamd starting first, by the time 
mythbackend starts the device nodes (/dev/dvb/adapter[0|1]) haven't been 
created. Hence mythbackend claims there is no tuners. A simple: service 
mythbackend restart  fixes the problem. Has anyone else faced this same 
issue and worked out a correct fix (rather than a @reboot cron job).
