I haven't been following this thread closely (not my hardware), but
would it be possible to tune using an external tuner script that uses
a mutex and some sleeps to avoid simultaneous tunes? I have no idea
if the way multirec tunes this hardware is amenable to breaking it
out externally like that.
I actually do something like this with Motorola STB's being tuned
through their serial ports. I discovered experimentally that
commanding more than 2 USB-serial devices causes garblage among
them,* so I wrote a script that only allows 2 simultaneous tunes to
happen---if there are 3 queued, the third waits until one of the first
two finishes, then gets to happen, etc. Works great. But I don't know
if your tuner is amenable to being controlled via an external script.
* No idea where in the stack this is happening, or if it's the USB
hub, or something else, and since it was very old code anyway I
figured it'll probably go away on an upgrade, so writing the script
was quick & easy.
