Cannot configure correct device with multiple identical Hauppage cards

Description

If you have multiple encoder cards of the same type (in this case, two Hauppage 350's), autodetection of the device name prevents one from correctly specifying the device file using mythtv-setup.

Specifically, adding the first card and configuring works fine. When adding the second card and specifying /dev/video1 and saving, the device is automatically changed to /dev/video0 (looks like it picks up the first probed Hauppage instead of the manually specified second Hauppage card and did a nasty override the dev!).

Fix was to go into the mysql 'capturecard' table and manually set the videodev column to /dev/video1 after which everything else worked just fine.
