Right, though note that "recording order" and "Live TV order" are
/order/, not priority.
According to MythTV's priority system, high priority wins. When it
comes to "recording order" and "Live TV order", 1 goes first, 2 goes
So, with the above, you'd use Tuner 2 for recordings before Tuner 1 and
you'd start Live TV on Tuner 1.
