What I don't understand with multirec is why the number of simultaneous
recordings is limited. Surely, if you're tuned to one mux, you should be
able to record everything that is coming across on that frequency? In
theory that would mean that here in the UK, you could record everyhing
on Freeview with six physical tuners. I'm not sure how many more would
be needed for Freesat.


While anyone can admit to themselves they were wrong, the true test is
admission to someone else.
