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).
