Encoder merit and Favorites

I added a new show to my Favorites list which caused a scheduling conflict between shows. I added a old USB tuner that I had lying around in order to resolve it but the old USB tuner doesn't have the best picture. So I'd like to make sure it's only used to record the new show. Since the new show was just added on to the bottom of the Favorites list, I'm hoping that the shows higher up on the priority list will use the other tuners first leaving the new show for the old USB tuner. Is there a way to use the encoder merit property to make sure this happens? All the tuner, involved are for SDTV via analog cable, not HDTV or QAM. Thanks.

Favorite priority and encoder merit don't really have anything to do with each other. Favorite priority just determines which programs should be dropped from the recording schedule in case of conflict. Similarly, encoder merit just says which of the available tuners should be assigned to a given recording task at the time that task is started. As far as I know these are two separate decision processes.
