when two people sound a major second interval, you hear a third tone
called a difference tone.

So far as I know, the word "hear" is very important because (so far
as I have read) a difference tone is manufactured by flesh in the human
ear, not by interference or summation of sound waves outside of the ear.
(See Arhur Benade, "Horns, Strings, and Harmony, Chapter IV, pg. 80+ in
the Dover paperback edition.)
I don't think that the insides of a tuner manufacture a difference
tone, and therefore the tuner won't "hear" a difference tone..... but I
could be wrong.
