No it isn't. It works perfectly fine when I use it for Live TV, and it
works perfectly fine for all other channels. It only breaks when I want
to record something from Channel 1004 (i.e. Channel 4 as in the name of
the broadcaster) on encoder 2, but it records Channel 3 (i.e. ITV) on

That's fine, but it *only* happens for Channel 1004. If I want to
record something from Channel 1001, it shows that it will record from
Channel 1001, and does so. If I want to record from Channel 1024, it
shows that it will record from Channel 1024 and does so. It *only*
happens on Channel 1004, it will show that it will record from Channel
4, but records from Channel 3.

I have set Encoder 2 as higher priority.
