[mythtv-users] Recording the wrong program on the wrong encoder?

Thing is that encoder 1 is set up properly and working fine, and encoder
2 is experimental, I don't mind if I lose all the rubbish I record on
that, but the good things I use encoder 1.
Anyway, no it wasn't a typo. I told it to use channel 1004, but
recorded channel 3 (i.e. ITV), even tho the "recording schedules" said
channel 4 (i.e. encoder 1 channel 4)

Actually, no. I only tried the "Find" rule to see if it solved the
problem, but it didn't. Here you go...
T4:Hollyoaks 1004 - Channel 4 Default Default Once
1 T4:Hollyoaks 4 - Channel 4 Sun Jul 3, 2005 (10:20 AM) 2 hrs 35
mins Don't Record Never Record
Even with an "Once" recording rule, it still will record from Channel 4
not Channel 1004.

Like I said, no, wasn't a typo.

Ok. How exactly can I do this? Encoder 2 is easy as it's an DVB card,
but Encoder 1 is an PVR card recording from an external digtial STB...
Thanks very much for your help though
