Thats good that it has been thought about :)
Someone a while ago, mentioned that it could be done by changing the
MythTv API so that when a client would ask for a Recorder, it would
send the channel ID it wanted as well. In this case it would get a
separate Recorder instance for each PID.

Anyway thanks for the work on this.
