Yeah, the part I quoted above. When you set up your recording rule for
a particular show, you'll get an option in the Scheduling Options
section for which Input to use/prefer. If you don't have this option,
you're running an older version without this feature. You can either
compile your own from a newer version with this feature, use a
packager that offers more recent (unstable) versions or wait for the
next stable release which will include this feature.
