Comment:

MythTV no longer supports using specific, HDHomeRun tuners. Instead,
tuners are pooled and used as needed. This is to better interoperate with
other applications that use HDHomeRuns.

In the future, please provide all relevant information here in the MythTV
bug tracking system. Reports that simply link elsewhere will likely be
closed as incomplete.

Comment:

I am sorry for the link. Will copy contents in future.

I entered/selected on dual tuner. Started a recording, clicked live tv and
received no tuner available.

In previous releases I would add tuner-0 and tuner-1 to have access to
both tuners in same ip address.

Comment:

As I said, you no longer configure specific tuners. Each input should be
configured to use the same HDHomeRun by device ID. If you get a no tuner
available error when entering live TV, first, check Information Center /
System Status / Input Status. If that shows free tuners, check in mythtv-
setup to see if live TV is allowed on those tuners.

Comment (by arreyder):

Should this also be true for the case where there are multiple hdhomerun
devices? Upon upgrading from 29 to 30, and attempting to do as you
describe above I'm limited to one total tuner when I should have 4
available. It gives me the option to check boxes for both hdhomeruns to be
associated with the single instance for capture. When I do this, only a
single tuner is available. If I only check a single box, and then repeat
for the second hdhomerun adding another capture device, and checking the
remaining one, I get 2 tuners available to record. Still missing 2. In
the past I would have defined 4 capture cards. I searched the wiki for a
more detailed explanation regarding how to properly configure hdhomeruns
now, but was unable to find any help. Thanks!

Comment (by Klaas de Waal):

With my 4-channel HDHR3-DVBC device the procedure in mythtv-setup is:
- Select "Capture cards"
- Select "(New capture card)" ; this generates an entry "New capture
card" at the bottom of the list
- Select the ¨New capture card" entry at the bottom of the list
- Select "HDHomeRun networked tuner"
- Tick box "Use HDHomeRun 1410F45C (hdhomerun3_dvbc 10.0.0.171)"
- Press Escape
- In popup box, select "Save then Exit¨

This has now created one capturecard entry for one tuner on the hdhomerun
on 10.0.0.171.

Now comes the key point.\\
You have to perform the above sequence for each of the HDHomeRun tuners
that you want to use in MythTV. To use four tuners, you have to do this
four times.
