I am curious as to why this ticket has been closed. There is a definite
problem, when the backend is recording, the frontend will only allow
selection of channels on the same transport as the backend is recording. It
will not automatically select a free DVB card that has the desired channel.
Before multi-rec, mythtv would select the next available card for the
frontend, when the backend was recording on the first card. With multi-rec,
it seems to attempt the same thing, but instead the next available card, is
the multi-rec virtual card of the first DVB, which then causes the
restriction of channel selection to the same transport.
As a result of this and WAF, I think I'll have to disable the multi-rec (ie
reduce to 1 recording per card).
