There is a setting to avoid back-to-back recordings on the same
channel if possible. I don't remember when it was added, but I believe
it was in the last release.
Utilities/Setup>Setup>TV Settings>Recording Priorities>Set Recording
When enabled, this will use a different tuner if possible to maintain
the soft pre/post roll options.
People are also working on a multi-record branch which should allow
the pre/post roll to be maintained in each file of a back-to-back
recording on the same DVB device in which case you would want to keep
this setting off, but it's still in the implementation/testing stages.
