    FIXED (Thx Frodo) Recording takes first card in list, ignoring 'free card'
    When watching a channel with a client on card 1, and recording starts for another channel, it takes card 1, so changing the watched channel by the client

    The test above was tested on DVB-S signals only. Analog will be tested soon, since I have to patch the analog cables still to the test box.

    I tested all with 2 dvb-s cards up to 5, mixed the different brands of cards, prios, etc, etc; making sure all was reinstalled cleanly between te tests ofc.

    No relevant (besides default) information was found in the logfiles for this, so none attached.

    On the tvserver, i have TVsetup running mostly to monitor. Dunno how that might affect the results maybe

    For more info, I'm idling on IRC most of the time.
