Thank you for your replies!!!

I was just being a bit saracastic about "Leave it to Beaver".  I think
it usually follows that show with the english dubs that takes place
somewhere in asia, and is some sort of sports bloopers.  Nonetheless,
these ideas will work great, thanks!  Thank you for the explaination
of how the recording priorities work by default.

As for the sun...  That's quite a neat bit of info!  That part too was
a bit sarcastic, I was basically hoping for some info on how to adjust
a specific channel, and painted a sarcastic picture around that
