2 Cetons & TAs - 1 TA Losing Lock to It's Own Ceton

Hard to give an accurate subject line so bare with me! :)

Have two Cetons with Mot TAs, each in a separate PC. One Ceton PC (the "master" HTPC with the extenders & main TV) has a ceton that isn't network shared. The other Ceton PC (the WHS server that's serving tuners to the kids PCs & my laptop) has the other ceton and is network shared.

What I'm noticing is that the Ceton drivers & TA services on the "master" are recognizing the WHS Ceton device ahead of the internal (as noticed by opening the Ceton diags and it almost immediately sees the networkd Ceton and it takes up to 30 additional seconds to see its own internal card).

As such, the TA on the "master" will lock on to the WHS first if I reboot the "master".

Anyone ideas?

Thanks

Just wanted to give an update:

Asked (and got) my 2nd Ceton added to the beta. The latest beta fw & drivers added extra fixes specifically for this problem.

After having it installed for almost two weeks now, I haven't lost a TA lock on the correct Tuner one time. Very happy.
