This isn't a menu-visible option. Your hint does explain why it turns itself
on, however:

config MEDIA_TUNER
tristate
default DVB_CORE || VIDEO_DEV
depends on DVB_CORE || VIDEO_DEV
I have DVB_CORE=n and VIDEO_DEV=y. VIDEO_DEV is:

config VIDEO_DEV
tristate "Video For Linux"

So if you enable Video For Linux, the tuner-core is automatically built, even
if no tuners are selected? Surely that's wrong..
