Comment(by Dibblah):

 Simon, looking at this ticket and restating the problem:

 1. A recording is in-progress (manual single record)
 2. User goes to 'upcoming recordings' screen, selects 'Currently
 Recording: Edit'
 3. Selects 'Don't record this programme' and Save.

 User expectation:

 1. In progress recording is cancelled
 2. Schedule is removed.

 Observed behavior:

 1. Schedule is removed.
 2. In-progress recording continues.

 The reason for this apparent discontinuity is that in-progress recordings
 are not affected by the scheduler - If a recording is ongoing, it will not
 be stopped if it's removed from the schedule.

 The main discrepancy here is that the UI is not explicitly separating the
 instance of this schedule from the schedule itsself. The 'schedule'
 referred to in this screen is the 'plan to record' - Not the program being

 Manually running the scheduler doesn't help (mythbackend --resched). The
 frontend uses  RemoteStopRecording for this functionality.
