The "unknown" programs are not real programs to be recordable. In fact the 
bug here is that they are markable for record at all.

In the future Myth should support real "freeform" recordings, perhaps 
something like pressing "F" within the EPG on a channel, and entering 
start/stop times (and perhaps a description) by hand.
