I think your scenarios are flawed, or at least, I can't reproduce any such
I just set up a recording schedule with:
2 Equal priority (ie, 0) SD tuners. All other default priorities set to 0,
'reschedule higher priority shows' disabled. ie, Everything's pretty much
Ocean's Twelve, starting at 10 am this Sunday on AMC.
The Break-Up, starting at 10 am this Sunday on USA - repeats at 7pm Sunday
and next Friday at 9pm.
(picked movies on common stations, with one movie repeating and the other
Both movies were told to record as 'find one', via mythweb. All defaults
otherwise for each recording schedule.
Both movies were scheduled by the backend to record at 10am on sunday - ie,
the first available showing, and definitely doing the proper thing.
