Feature Request: Rename "extra priority" to "additional cost"
Just a thought... there's been intermittent debate about how people interpret the priority of adapters, and the fact that the mechanism is upside-down (i.e. increasing the "extra priority" actually decreases the priority of that adapter).
Why not just rename it in the WebUI (and maybe config files, but less important) to something like "additional cost to use" or similar? Might make more sense then...

I asked SWMBO for a view from a non-technical perspective, and simply had "why don't you add a note that says '0=highest priority, 10000=lowest?'".
If we want to keep it as a checkbox with a simple description, then I suppose you're into "cost" instead of "priority", since that's effectively what you're doing ("Increase adapter cost by..."). Dredging other euphemisms, all I can think of otherwise is something around "adapter queue position" or "serving position" - kind of take-a-ticket style.

Agree. Current model is apparently:
The tuner priority value for streamed channels through HTTP or HTSP (higher value = higher priority to use this tuner). If not set (zero), the standard priority value is used.
