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.


i've got the ubuntu 7.10, mythtv build 20.2, i don't see where i can select
which tuner per recording. When i setup my live tv, default, high quality,
etc, it doesn't say preferred tuner or anything like that. Could it be cause
i have an old version?

No, when you first set up the tuner in mythtv-setup, not recording profiles.

 I got that bit, but that won't help me tell it to record Seinfeld or
Mythbusters on one tuner, and other shows on the other tuners. Any ideas? 

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.


So simple i didn't see that before. Thank you. I have another issue too,
perhaps you can help: Two shows on my upcomming recordings list are
scheduled to record the latter of the new episode. For example, stargate
atlantis is on at 10pm, but it is not recording that episode, instead it
will record the one on at 12am. Any idea why this could happen? All my other
shows are fine, but there is stargate atlantis and the real housewives of
orange county (Wife show).
