    In my multiseat environment with two DVB-S cards on the server when switching channels on the client under certain conditions the indication of available channels in not correct.

    I will eleborate on the problem:

    The available channels are assigned to my two DVB-S cards as follows:

    Card1: all (unscrambled) channels + scrambeld channels (ORF1 & 2)
    Card2: all (unscrambled) channels

    Let's consider the following situation:

    Card 1 is recording ORF1
    Card 2 is timeshifting Sat1

    If I try to switch channels MP indicates the following availabilities:

    ORF1 correct since Card1 is recording this channel
    ORF2 correct since ORF2 is on the same transponder as ORF1 --> Card1
    Sat1 correct since Card2 timeshifting this channel
    Pro7 correct since Pro7 is on the same transponder as Sat1 --> Card2
    VOX correct since VOX is on the same transponder as Sat1 --> Card2

    all other channels are shown as not available --> which is NOT CORRECT since Card2 is not blocked (it is not recording but only timeshifting!!)

    This status would be correct as soon as Card2 starts recording as well; then only the channels on the same transponder as the ones the two cards are locked to would be available.

    Since I can however switch to any other channel (also the ones that are marked as not available) this looks to me like a minor issue with the logic responsible for indicating the status.

    If any logs are necessary I can provide them tomorrow earliest.

    Just a personal note: TVE3/MP (especially the multiseat setup) is by far the best mediacenter available, thank you again!!! :)
