This is one of my only real complaints with Myth, and
one of the few things that keeps my box from getting
high marks on the WAF. It's smart enough to know when
I begin watching TV that a recording is in progress,
and to use the other tuner, but somehow when I'm
watching TV, it doesn't know that the other tuner is
sitting there idle? I think in a previous message I
speculated that it had something to do with the
modularity of the frontend / backend design causing
this problem, but who knows.. besides Isaac.
If tuner state were stored in the database, this
shouldn't be a problem!
