I don't think so.  The recording-group stuff lets you specify a given
set of rules on a per backend granularity.  I don't think it maes
sence  to set it on a per frontend granularity (I assume you want to
change it to use 'LiveTV' or 'High-Quality' or 'Low-Quality' instead
of 'Default'?).  In this case, what  you want  is to change the
'Default' profile for a given frontend (profile groups are used to
configure settings for a given card (or class of cards))  They aren't
attached to a given recording, but instead are looked up when the
recording begins.

So what you want is to add some code that will associate a profile
with a frontend when the recordinng is defined.  I'm not precisely
sure where that code would go (havn't looked at this stuff for a
while), but I think that finding a convenient way to configure it
might be a bit challenging.
