Recordings and any conflicts with them will be managed by the 
scheduler.  Higher priority rules will get preference, and with equal 
rules, mythtv will try to reschedule one at a later time.  Scheduled 
recordings may pre-empt livetv if you allow it, and mythfrontend will 
refuse to start a livetv session if no recorders are available to use.
