 Replying to [comment:6 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?

 As the original bug reporter, I will explain why I needed a new recording

 I record from DVB (DVB-T in the UK) and quite a lot of what I record are
 radio programs.  One of the options available in the profile editor is
 "Recording Type" which can be "TV only", "Audio only" or "Normal".  I
 added a new recording profile of "Radio" that uses "Audio only" because I
 think there is (or there was) a problem with trying to record video from a
 radio-only channel.  I could have edited the "Low quality" profile and
 used that for radio but using something with one name to represent
 something else if a bit of a kludge.  My solution was to raise this bug
 report and patch my code to offer "Radio" as a profile.

 If you do delete the ability to create new profiles then there should be a
 built-in profile to match each of the options currently available.  For
 DVB cards this would be a "Normal", "TV only" and "Audio only" profile and
 this would, as you suggest, remove the need for creating or editing
