It's a quick operation because the lineups, channels, rules, etc. are
associated with the Video/Listings source, not the tuner card. So
what Mike is saying is you delete all the Tuner Cards (Mythtv-setup
step 2), recreate them, and then just to Step 4 and attach them to the
inputs. You skip step 3 entirely and everything will look and act
exactly as it always has. He's not exaggerating to say that it's a
30-60 second operation. Once you do it, you'll go "I can't believe
it's that easy!" :)

It's not myth's fault, it's just how databases work. You can't reset
the counter on the whole table without truncating th table.
