Selecting currently recording item in guide, users a new tuner - Adeski - 2016-10-10

Hi

I've noticed that selecting an item in the guide launches a new instance of a tuner even if the tuner is currently recording the programme selected.
Please can this be altered so that if programme selected is being currently recorded then the same tuner be used, else crashes occur.
Thanks!

It'll usually reuse the same tuner, but some scenarios can cause it to look for a different tuner.

Either way, a crash shouldn't occur. If you want to supply the logs for that, I'll check it out.
