You've added and deleted tuners...they stay in the sql database to
If you want to 'clean' the database you'll have to delete the existing
tuners, shut down mythtv-setup, shut down the mythbackend service,
restart the mysql database, restart mythbackend, re run mythtv-setup
and re-install the tuners.
Even using the above procedure it's sometimes not cleared them
properly and I've resorted to manually going into the database and
removing the tuner settings, while mythbackend was stopped of course.
I'd suggest doing this as keeping the tuners in a sensible order makes
life easier later. Also it's pretty unlikely you'll need more then 2
multi rec tuners on a satellite feed because of the way the satellite
mux's are set up.
