Yes, if there was a conflicting show on another channel, the
show on this channel would have an default advantage of 1. The
other way to go would be to set the analog channel to -1 instead.
Here if there were two conflicts (we know it already lost one
conflict for use of source 4 ;-), it would have a disadvantage
by -1 for use of the analog card.
The input preference also has a side effect that is almost always
positive. If a show is only available to record on a not preferred
input at 8:00pm but can be recorded on the preferred input at 2:00am,
the scheduler will choose the better quality at 2:00 rather than
the earliest showing on the lesser input. When this happens, the
conflicts page will mark the 8:00pm showing as "L"aterShowing. You
can then press Enter and choose Add Override if you really do want
to catch the first showing.
