Well, yes.  I figured that was obvious.  I thinking more of what to
show if soneone else looks at the schedule on another frontend or
mythweb.  The easy thing would be to treat any card being used for
live TV as totally unavailable just like a card on an off-line
backend.  The difference between live TV and an off-line backend is
that the card isn't totally unavailable, it could be used if really
needed with the user's permission, and it will likely be fully
available in the near future.

I haven't tried it either.

What if the user wants to watch a channel that is only available on
another card?

Running the scheduler a few extra times shouldn't really hurt
anything.  It's already run unnecessarily and no one has complained
too loughly.
