why must LiveTV always be interrupted?

This is what I was afraid of, and why I was asking for
I only have a basic system of two tuners using analog
cable. The algorithm is really simple:
- If the tuner for the scheduled recording is busy,
then find the next free tuner.
- If there are no free tuners, then use the scheduled
tuner (and pop up the dialog box as normal).
So, I guess the question then, is how do you manually
specify a tuner in the GUI (or are you editing the
database manually)? In looking at the conflict
resolution screen, I found a number (1 or 2 on my
system), which seems to correspond to a tuner number,
but I couldn't figure out how to change this. Or is
this something that is done during the initial "setup"
program? Looking at some of the advanced
configuration options, I can also venture a guess that
maybe it's in the recording profile as well. Please
clarify this for me.
One thing that I was thinking of is putting it in the
configuration options, so that you can enable it if it
makes sense for you (like me, I really love this fix,
and it's only about 10 lines), or if you have a system
where you assign tuners specifically, then it can be
Definitely I'm looking for input and trying to make
this as compatible as possible.
