I thank you for taking the time to write all of that down, it's a nice 
temporal workaround for some people, but you must understand that this 
is not a usable, permanent, fix.
As you said, in this setup, 2 seperate tuners could be locked to the 
same multiplex, which is completely inefective.

I'm not asking anyone to fix it for us, but at least acknowledge that 
this is not the way it should behave and leave the bug open shouldn't be 
too much to ask.

Btw, I just noticed another Multirec bug made by janne: 
It doesn't tackle this problem directly, but could fix it "down the 
line". I'll ask what he/she has in mind for it, otherwise I'm thinking 
about creating a bounty for this.
