Basically the same categories.  I added the 'general' one as a temporary
measure (read: dumping ground) where I could see everything at once and sort
it out.

I separated off the recording stuff somewhat in order to create profiles,
rather than having one set of global recording settings.  I imagine I'll
take a similar approach to the tuner/capture card/sound card/XMLTV stuff if
I get around to it, since those are logically configured in the same way.
One wizard for "new input source" which goes from capture card to card input
to sound card to listings.  I dunno what I'd call that category, though,
since it's something of a mixed bag.
