But that is wrong. Your "if possible" notation would confuse things the
same way they are confused now. It is not "if possible", but rather
"after the scheduling is done", which is a problem for the hidef tuner
cards that take 15-20 seconds to lock in a channel. You lose that much
of the beginning of the show.
I believe what Steven was saying is that there should be settings for
"hard" and "soft" pre-roll and post-roll. Soft being ones that are
added after scheduling and hard being ones that are taken into account
by the scheduler, which would then use the three tuner cards that he has.
Do I have this correct Steven?
