[mythtv-users] issue: when 1st tuner busy recording, browsing channels on 2nd tuner is "jumpy"

Hi there,

Yes, I am top posting but this device gives me no other choice, damn

If the user has a dual tuner than the user is rightly asking why? If the
user has one tuner we need to suggest multirec.

If multirec then the second show shouldn't be jumpy unless cpu load or i/o
on the pci?bus/hdd was saturated.

If it is hd I would think this is more than possible with pci and the use
may wish to turn off multirec to prevent this.

Multirec allows a single tuner to tune into a single frequency where
multiple channels are transmitted in a single multiplex. Myth can reqwuest
one or more channels upto various system limits (hdd / i/o on the
appropriate bus / cpu etc).

Please excuse brevity and mistakes, this email was composed on a mobile

Thanks and regards,
Richard Morton
