[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
