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.
