[mythtv-users] Recorder failover if selected recorder fails at record time?

Is there any provision in Myth to have it automatically select a 
different tuner if the one it selected to do a recording on fails?

Seems like it could be handy. Suppose your Firewire connected tuner was 
unplugged, Myth could then fall back on your SDTV tuner of the same program.

I know there is some work being done on grouping tuners. How about 
graceful degraded tuner failover?

Thanks in advance.
