Hi Paul

Not sure if this helps as I havn't tried storage groups yet so have no 
experience of this features' potential impact.

If I want to record 2 programmes in the same time slot, I use "Schedule 
Options/Prefer Input Tuner 1" for one and "Schedule Options/Prefer Input 
Tuner 2" for the other.  This works fine and dandy.

FYI,  I have Mythbuntu 8.10 Alpha 4 running at the moment and have no 
pre buffering pauses at all.  Prior to this release, pre buffering was 
something of a nuisance as were hard lockups known to afflict some 
hardware.  If you have the means, might be worth a look as, apart from a 
couple of minor issues, this package is quite stable for an Alpha 
release and is certainly quite usable.
