Comment (by stuartm):

 I don't actually think this is fixable. We might want to disable the
 ability to create custom group names, the four built-in groups (which can
 be edited) should be enough?

 The problem is that profiles are associated with a particular card type,
 we can't allow users to specify the use of a custom profile they've
 created for HDHomeRun recorders because we can't know which device the
 recording will ultimately be recorded on. The point of have four common
 named profiles per card is that no matter which device is used there will
 be a 'High Quality' defined for it.

 There's another more dramatic course and that is dropping the recording
 profile stuff entirely. Despite my example using the HDHomeRun, the
 profiles really only apply to 'capture' cards in any meaningful way. These
 days most users are using digital and for the rest disk space is a lot
 cheaper, the facility to change encoding rates/resolutions for different
 recordings doesn't really seem to be worth the complexity it introduces to
 the code and the UI.
