Package: kaffeine
Version: 0.8.7-1
Severity: wishlist

I have two DVB-T devices in my computer covering the same channels - Kaffeine
detects them both and can use them if for example I start recording on one, I
can change channels still to another transponder (is that the term?) and
record that or channel surf there.

If I hit pause on live tv, however, and then switch to another channel, my
timeshifting of the current channel is forgotten and the other tuner is not
called into use.

When I'm recording something with the multiple tuners, it's not immediately
obvious which channel I've hit record on, until I select each channel one by
one and see if the record button is depressed. This seems counter intuitive
when multiple tuners are installed - perhaps the radio or TV icon should glow

I choose to use Kaffeine over say Myth because my TV also happens to be my main
workstation and is therefore not geared to run a heavyweight backend all the
time, whereas Kaffeine has timer record, can happily sit in the notification
area but is easy to turn off/not start when I need to devote my PC's processing
to other tasks.

Devices in use:
        Twinhan VisionPlus DVB-T PCI card
        Afatech based DVB-T USB dongle
