The question becomes what does the scheduler to in the face of this when
two programs are to be recorded back-to-back on the same tuner and both
are asking for 5 minute pre and post-rolls?

If they are on the same channel, I have often mused that Myth could
handle that by writing that 5 minutes of what will be post-roll on the
first show and pre-roll on the second show (i.e. it's the same 5 minutes
in time for both) to both files.

But if they are on different channels it of course becomes more
difficult without a tuner for each program.

FWIW, I now have 4 tuners in my myth "network".  3 in the master BE and
one that I put into another machine around here just to handle the rate
situation when there are in fact 4 things all on at the same time that
we want to record.  :-)
