#1239: instant record and scheduled recording don't mix well
 Reporter:  mythtv.cvs at L8R.net  |       Owner:  ijr
     Type:  defect              |      Status:  new
 Priority:  minor               |   Milestone:

 Severity:  medium              |  
 I was watching a LiveTV show at 12:10am, and decided to record it using
 the record button.  On the same channel, I had a recording previously
 scheduled for 12:30am.

 Before the end of my show, the familiar "what do you want to do" conflict
 menu popped up, indicating I had three choices.  The abort the upcoming
 recording (third down) item was pre-selected, whereas generally the record
 upcoming event and watch (top) item is usually selected by default.

 Anyhow, the reasons are obvious for the default select on abort.  I was in
 a conflict and I had two slightly overlapping recordings scheduled on the
 same video source (note: I have other tuners, but I realise Myth isn't yet
 able to shift recordings to other tuners on demand like this yet).

 I moved from the "cancel upcoming recording" item (third) to "let it
 record and watch" item (top).  I left it there.  Eventually the next show
 came on (and being on the same channel, I did not realise that my request
 was not being honoured).

 I'm not sure what should happen here precisely, but in this particular
 case the "let it record and watch" item was not possible.  Perhaps it
 should be "cancel this recording and let the scheduled recording happen".

 In any case, the mythbackend logs show it canceling the scheduled
 recording, in favour of the livetv recording, even though I told it to
 record the scheduled recording...
