Avoid conflicts between live TV and scheduled shows
If enabled, live TV will choose a tuner card that is less likely to have
scheduled recordings rather than the best card available.

Allow live TV to move scheduled shows
If enabled, scheduled recordings will be moved to other cards (where
possible), so that live TV will not be interrupted.
