Read this, and its various links
Two main features of multirec are.
Two channels on the same multiplex can be recorded on on tuner.
In my case PBS has 6-1,6-2,6-3,6-4. All four could be recorded at
once with a single tuner.
Back to back recordings on the same channel will seamlessly
overlap with a single tuner, rather than causing the tuner to stop
recording the first show and then start recording the second show.
This is the feature I'm looking forward to.
I think the multiple channels on the same multiplex is a bigger deal
in Europe where they have satellite feeds with many channels in the
same multiplex. This also seems to be where the development effort is
PS I don't have the right cards so it doesn't work for me. I was in
your boat about 3 months ago trying to figure out if I could use it.
