Schedule Backup Exec 2010 SQL Transaction Log Backups

I was wondering if anyone had a good way scheduling SQL Transaction Log Backups. My problem is, I want my transaction log backups to run hourly but not at the same time not when the full or differential backups are running...Anyone know a way around this? Would the priority and availability section of the backup be a good way of handing this?

what are the times you have scheduled the full and differential backups, in my case i have full backup every day once, diff backup every hour and log backups every 2 hours

        diff backup at 1 PM
                                             log backup at 1.30
next diff backup at 2 PM                            
next diff backup at 3 PM
                                            log backup at 3.30

Full (M, W, F) - DIFF(T, TH, S) Transaction Logs 4 hours...I was hoping there was a way to link the jobs kind of the way you can with duplicate backup sets.

You can schedule the back up using SQL Job.

We have decided to run these jobs using SQL and the I will pickup the BAK files using BackupExec for tape backups.
