Most likely the start early/end late options he specified, along with
recording priorities (or, perhaps, preferred input settings), were
causing back-to-back recordings to flip-flop from one tuner to the next, so
Note, also, there's:
Avoid back to back recordings
- Different Channels
Selects the situations where the scheduler will avoid assigning shows to
the same card if their end time and start time match. This will be
allowed when necessary in order to resolve conflicts.
which, if changed to anything but its default of Never, could cause
issues for users without a lot of physical tuners. So, Brian, you
should definitely look at that setting under Recording Priorities (which
is really just general recording options) in frontend settings.
