Recorder Bugs

Recorder Bugs

While I've been playing around combining two machines for recording purposes, I've come across a couple of bugs.

Recorder/Tuner priority

The Argus TV Wiki says that when setting recorder priorities, 0 is highest. I've been watching Argus doing recordings tonight and even though I have the tuner on machine 1 set as priority 0, Argus is recording on the 2nd machine which I've set as priority 1, and there's only one thing recording. While a recording was going, I made the mistake of changing the priorities around, which leads me to bug 2 ...

Failed recordings when changing priorities

This isn't the first time I've seen something like this happen with Argus TV.

After I changed the priority of the recorder, the recording immediately crashes out and fails to restart, stating there are no available tuners. This is obviously incorrect as I could immediately record something else, however the original recording fails to restart no matter whether you delete and recreate the schedule or restart the Argus TV services.

Firstly, I don't quite understand why changing priorities immediately stopped the recording, although I'm assuming it reinitialised all the cards?

Second, why does Argus TV refuse point blank to continue the recording with the new settings? The 'no free cards' error is obviously incorrect.

The first one depends also on your setting if Argus shall switch the prio order for live TV, but you´re right.
