Ticket #5998 (new task) see end of post http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/369356?search_string=multirec;#369356 states that this is about creating virtual multirec channels on the fly, to better optomise shared recordings off a single card.

As well as optomisation, this solves a number of problems usually revolving around channels being locked onto a tuner that is in use by another process(eg. another recording, channel, frontend or picture in picture).

Would this multirec senario replace the decision logic for single tuner, single multirec scenarios? I would want to make the code paths the same if possible. 

I would like to also suggest that when a new card is needed that myth would pick the cards that have the most multirecs available first. This would be to avoid bottle neck scenarios, eg where a sky box is connected via a hardware capture card, and a dvbt card that has 5 multirecs, Myth would use the DVB multirecs first for either LiveTV or recordings.

I would like to help with this particular problem with coding but would need to talk with the developer janne to coordinate efforts (please contact me Janne).

Many thanks

Mark Bennett
