Good suggestion, thanks. However, in my case, since 99% of my
schedules are "on this channel" they won't search any other channel.

I need the first recording to actually find the channel or program
unavailable, fail, then the 2nd recording will take over.

trying to balance between HD OTA tuners (10 stations) and non-HD Cable
tuners (80+ stations) can get hairy some times.

Anyone else have any other ideas? I know this should be do-able..
