No, they are different than NoRecordType.  I should create an enum for
the override types, but haven't gotten a round tuit yet.  It's on my
todo list now.

Override type == 1 means record this showing of a program.  The most
typical uses for it are to re-record a duplicate program without
having to change the RecordDups setting and to record a specific
showing when the scheduler would otherwise record a different showing
of the same episode.

Override type == 2 means don't record this showing of a program.  A
typical use is when the guide data doesn't provide enough information
for the scheduler to tell that multiple showings are really the same

It's the correspongind recordid from the record table.  Overrides are
always tied to a specific scheduled recording.
