Priority for Live TV over PVR
Hi, is it possible to give to live tv a higher priority? Sometimes I'm watching a show and an Autorec with priority Low/Unimportant starts and take over.
I'd like to set live tv a "normal" priority, this way when I'm watching something, only Autorecs with priorities above Normal would take over the live tv stream.

Set the priority of the streaming profile you are using. For example, if you want to make sure that live TV in Kodi is only interrupted by a recording with a higher priority, set the htsp streaming profile to 'DVR Override:<Your Preferred Priority>' then ensure any recordings you want to override this have a higher priority.
For example, by default, recordings have no (or default) priority so they are all treated equally. If you set the htsp profile to 'DVR Override: High' then only recordings with a priority higher than 'High' will be allowed to interrupt live TV.
I have not tested this (as I doubt with 8 tuners I'll ever have a clash) but it would be good if you could let me know if this works for you.
EDIT: Obviously if you're not using htsp as your default streaming profile (if you're using Kodi you should be ) then substitute htsp with your profile.
