This is causing problems for me. I have one card (pvr350) with two inputs, 
DirecTV and local cable. The local cable is just basic, and only useful for 
certain local channels and as a backup. I haven't gone through the agonizing 
process of disabling all the cable channels I don't have, so now the 
scheduler thinks its OK to record stuff from it. I will set the priority, but 
it sounds like that will only help if there are no conflicts.

I was pretty OK with having to specify the input I wanted to record from. 
Perhaps the option to choose among any available input should be a 
per-program option...
