Hi Paul

I've got 3 Nova-T's which I think will be more than ample to avoid
pesky conflicts, I suppose I should schedule 6 shows at once and see
what happens :-D Fortunately I've got 3x300GB disks (Loving the
storage groups, only gone to SVN recently for multirec!) I just hope
it spreads the recordings out intelligently among the drives, I'll go
search the archives for that.

As an aside, when using LiveTV I am getting lots of those "You should
have channel lock by now" messages which are a PITA so I'm off to
search for a solution to that as well!
