Thanks for the heads up.  Changing the start recording early, end
recording late option in the individual recording schedule did in fact
cause myth to start using the idle tuners.  I always assumed the
global early/late setting had the same effect as the early/late
setting on the individual schedules.  Apparently not so though I don't
know why not.
