Oh, I missed the "certain shows" part. I thought you wanted to make  
that card higher priority in general.

When you set up your recording rule, you can choose which tuner to  
prefer for that particular recording rule. I'm not sure which version  
that was introduced, but I've been using it for a while now. It might  
be in .20-fixes. Anyway, it won't caue a conflict if that tuner is  
otherwise occupied, but it will try to use that one first.
