[mythtv-users] FCC blockouts

I generally run current SVN versions so I can't tell you at what point this 
feature became available.   But if you run mythtv-setup and go into the 
channel editor, you should be able to increase the channel priority for a 
specific channel to make mythtv "prefer" to record on that channel if the 
program is available on two channels.

   In San Jose I have a problem that shows up once in awhile with NBC.
It's in town on channel 3 and out of town on channel 28. If the two
show the same program at the same time then the one on channel 28 is
blocked out. Normally Myth will choose the one on channel 3, the
channel I asked it to record. In that case I'm always fine.
Periodically it will, for some reason I don't understand, choose the
one on channel 28 which is blocked and MYth records an hour of blue
screen messages.

   Short of deleting channel 28 from my channel lineup is there a way
to tell Myth to choose channel 3 over channel 28 when the program info
is the same?
