Now, let's sat I'm watching one channel just as a show is due to start recording on another channel - MythTV asks me what I'd like to do, and none of the options imply "record with the other tuner" - surely it'd make more sense for it to just start recording the other show using the redundant tuner?

Frontend settings, General, General (Basic):
Avoid conflicts between live TV and scheduled shows.
If enabled, live TV will choose a tuner card that is less likely to have
scheduled recordings rather than the best card available.
