    Tuner Usage

    I tried a little experiment with V5 to see if I could isolate its selection of which of three cable card tuners, 0, 1, or 2, to use for viewing. I got confusing results.

    On Settings->Devices, I moved the lowest priority tuner, tuner 2, to the highest priority and selected a channel to view from the Channels page. Tuner 0 was selected. Why? I then removed all channels from tuner 0 and tried again(This also emptied my Favorites channel group). Again, tuner 0 was selected. How? I deleted all the channels from it. I looked at the devices page and found that the channel I'd selected to view was now listed for tuner 0! Very spooky.

    Obviously I don't understand how this works so drawing conclusions from my testing is very likely useless. Unless there is a problem somewhere.

    Can you help explain the results I observed?

    Thanks.

    Are you talking recording or live tv priority (which defaults to reverse order)?

    The second issue sound like a bug but deleting channels from a tuner is not the same as disabling it as we could go in v4. If you want to reserve it for another purpose, maybe you can edit the database?

    Yeah, I'd forgotten about the live TV priority but I don't recall seeing it in Settings. But why would a tuner empty of channels be selected? Will V5 provide for disabling devices?

    I can't think that would be possible, since it's tuning information would have been deleted from the database, but I'll try to reproduce it here later.

    I'm intending to, but it's not there yet. I was focusing initially on the most commonly used features.

    OK, I'll be listening.

    BTW, I've attached the log files. I hope they're useful.
