Hmm sorry to hope on the thread I noticed you can specify max recordings
per capture card in mythtv-setup, if one is using the Nova T-500 for
instance and there were 4 channels available on each MUX could you in
theory set max recordings to 4 for each individual tuner? (I've currently
got mine set as 2 max recordings per tuner).
