Does the scheduler in the TiVo even take into account multiple
"backends"?  I'd be pretty surprised if it did.  If I'm right, with 2
TiVo's with 4 tuners, you become the scheduler yourself (having to put
the right rules on each of the 2 TiVo boxes to ensure all your
concurrent recordings are recorded).
