Delete all tuners on all backends and re-create them. That will drop/
recreate the table and reset the cardinality correctly and although it
sounds drastic, it doesn't take that long to set up the cards and
assign input connections again. Remember to set them up in order of
priority too so your "best" card(s) are used before your "not as good"
