What do you mean with "streamdev sends the channel before it is tuned"? As you
mentioned ffmpeg, I assume you are refering to HTTP streaming here. For HTTP,
streamdev first tunes the device, then it adds receivers for the channel's
PIDs, sends the HTTP headers and finally starts to forward the data it
receives from the device. So unless hdhomerun tunes the channel in the
background, it should be tuned when streamdev starts to reply.
