Turning off the Auto start comm detection on the backend seemed to do
It used to be able to run 2 comm detection jobs (in near real time) and
record at the same time. Although all recordings used to be done from HD
homeruns, mostly as HD. I guess recording from an HDPVR is a bit more
work for the server.
