[mythtv-users] Idea for faster channel surfing

I had an idea about how the delay might be reduced when changing
channels.  In a 2+ tuner system, can one tuner "leapfrog" the other and
start buffering the next or previous channel, depending on the direction
the user is surfing?

For example, I start at channel three. 
Tuner two starts buffering channel four.
I go to channel four and start reading the buffer.
Tuner 1 starts buffering channel five.

Would this work?
