#3496: Trying to enable the soft padding feature is a pain in the ass.
 Reporter:  anonymous  |       Owner:  ijr    
     Type:  patch      |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  major      |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythtv     |     Version:  unknown
 Severity:  medium     |  
 The softpad branch should be folded into the trunk.  Without it, MythTV
 fails to catch every two-part season finale or season opener unless you
 check for conflicts with regularity.  This happened to me tonight on the
 CW.  In fact, the lack of soft padding is the primary reason I am dumping
 my TiVo in favor of MythTV.  I heard so much about this feature that I
 assumed that... I don't know... it actually WORKED in recent releases
 without having to install some custom branch that doesn't appear to even
 be kept up-to-date....

 That said, the only thing that sucks more than missing a show because of a
 boneheaded scheduler is finding out that the fix has been sitting there on
 a branch for a year and still hasn't gotten folded into the trunk.  It's
 time to fold it in.  If you think it will screw things up for people, make
 it an optional checkbox, but fold it into the trunk so that it's not such
 a pain in the ass to enable the feature.

 PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE fold softpad into the trunk.
