Mythtv doesn't offer external channel change scripts for all digital tuners,
dunno if it has the option for the 950Q or not.
But the place for the mutex is somewhere in one of the drivers that manages
the 950Q, probably in the au0828 driver. At some point I suspect I'll go in
there and just fix the danged thing myself. But for now, disabling multirec
keeps it working well enough.
