Thank you. I understand the impact my choice makes in that matter.  
However, all of the other modules required for cx18 to function are  
marked in the lists as -M- indicating it is a required module/module  
dependency. I apologize for my ignorance of terminology, etc., but it  
would seem to me that "Simple tuner support" should automatically have  
the -M- as a required resource for the tuner to function correctly.

Thank you for your time in responding.
