Can anyone tell me if MP will select the good signal from one of multiple tuners?

I will have 2 hauppauge 2250 cards so 4 tuners total. Each card will have a separate antenna and receive certain channels.

Tuner1&2 channels A, C, D
Tuner3&4 channels B, E, F

Will MP choose Tuner1&2 if channel A needs recording? Or is it random and may possibly select Tuner3&4? And therefore not record.

    I believe it will select it via the order set in tv server config (you can order and set the priority there)

    You can assign specific channels to tuners also

    You can set tuner priority in the TV server configuration. 1 is the lowest priority then MP will use the highest priority card with the channel mapped to it unless it's busy then MP will select the next tuner with the channel mapped to it and so on.

    Don't forget to set your hauppauge 2250 cards up as hybrid cards.

    If you use TV Server Config -> TV Mapping, you should be able to assign specific channels to tuners. See the following wiki
    http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...Server_Configuration/03_TV_Channels/2_Mapping

    For my system I set some channels to dedicated HDHR tuners and set my 2250 tuner for all channels. In TV Servers, I set the priority for the HDHR tuners as "high" priority so the TV Server selects those tuners 1st for the enabled channels, and set the 2250 tuner as "low" priority so the TV Server will use those tuners for any channels if the HDHR tuners are already busy. You can tweak how you allocate tuners/priority.
