[mythtv] [IDEA] Tuner availability

Just bouncing an idea off the list:

I had the idea to add a tuner availability field to each card.  This 
would have four options :

- Available for LiveTV and Scheduled Recordings
- Available for LiveTV only
- Available for Scheduled Recordings Only
- Unavailable

This would allow a little finer control over what cards are used for in 
certain situations allowing users to leave a card completely dedicated 
for LiveTV while having other tuners handle the recordings as well as 
mark a tuner as unavailable (for whatever reason).

Thoughts?  Any outright objection?
