    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..
