I did the same thing last night with my wife's "CSI: Miami." Killed the
backend about 40 minutes into the show because I wanted to update and
then realized a show was recording so I restarted the backend real quick.
Now there's 2 entries, one 40 minutes long (shown as 60 since the end time
didn't get updated since I killed the backend) and another that's 20

I looked into this a little and believe it is because the conflicts screen
does not get its info from the scheduler. It gets info using
QUERY_GETALLPENDING which is handled by
MainServer::HandleGetPendingRecordings which creates a new scheduler
instance to get a list of pending recordings. We should probably make
MainServer::HandleGetPendingRecordings get it's info from the existing
scheduler rather than creating a new scheduler. It looks like a lot of
places in mainserver.cpp create their own scheduler instance in order to
get a list of recordings which may or may not match the real scheduler's
lists since they don't have access to the DontRecordList, etc. in the
It almost looks like we could just pass in the active scheduler to mainserver
and have mainserver just get the lists from the scheduler rather than
creating a new instance.
