But in the loop to find the device:

++i) {

I don't see how GetDevice could not "take" a device being used for
recording since we're accessing it with an index number
0..(NumDevices-1) and not asking by channel + priority. And if GetDevice
were to return NULL here for a device being used for recording, this
would segfault on the dev->ProvidesChannel(...) call.

So I think it *will* grab the first device (by index) that a) can serve
this channel b) is not used for live tv.
