    I realized the following and possibly principal issue in MP. I have one S2 TV card and one standard (dual) SD TV card.

    When a preprogrammed recording is about to start I am not sure which card will actually be selected for the recording. If the S2 card is used, watching HD channels parallel to the ongoing recording is obviously not possible. Is there any mechanism which card is chosen or is it arbitrary, depending which one is available at a given time?
