actually I don't record that much, but in that case I simply wouldn't: 
if I'm watching live tv I can manually stop the timer or simply leave it 
recording. I just cannot do the two things at once and I know that.

I just tried and the first timer scheduled is the one that "wins" and 
that seems fine to me. Again, I don't expect to be able to record from 
two satellites at once (just like with a fixed dish it's impossible to 
record from two transponders at once).

In fact vdr doesn't let me do that (but that's no different than with a 
fixed dish).
