in your scheudler patch, you do the same as i do, but i think we also nedd 
to check if the mplex id is not 0, because if it is, then it is no dvb 
device and maybe the user has two analog ones so he never get conflicts... 
or i'm wrong??

LiveTV *should* work with only the first patch applied.  The second patch 
break it.  That is because setting up LiveTV uses a different code, at least
for some of it, which I haven't looked at porting yet.  Because like you I
don't use it.

I wasn't planning on integrating LiveTV into the multiple recorders code.
That is if your watching LiveTV that card will not be used to record.  Do so
would increase the complexity of the code.  Implementing it can be left to a
later date if the feature is desirable.

For digital capture cards I don't see why you wouldn't want it.  For analog
ones that have to do encoding it would double the CPU usage.  The way I 
NuppelVideoRecorder it does the encoding in the output class.  Turning it 
for those types of recorders would have its advantages.
