By recording LiveTV, I don't mean the buffer but starting a recording while
watching a program. So say I was watching some sport and I decide part way
through that I would actually like to record it. I press the record button
and I would prefer this to be recorded by Hau1. I would assume that if
priority for LiveTV is given to Hau1 then recording in this manner should
continue with Hau1.

The obvious problem is what happens when I change channels. I would guess
that Hau1 would then either stop recording or record what is on the new
channel. I don't think either action would be unreasonable.

Hmm. A third tuner. An idea worth thinking about I suppose.
