[Oscar, I'm including one of your private emails here since it's
relevant and I don't think there was anything sensitive in it.  If you
disagree, let me know and I won't do it again.]

I don't know how easy that would be to do, nor how well it would work.

That sounds good.  Unless something better is suggested, this is what
I'll probably do.

Off hand, IMHO, because it's too hard to know exactly what your
intentions were.  You could have gone into the recording page for any
number of reasons.  Having an explicit re-enable recording option make
it, well, explicit.

The problem is that pressing 'R' doesn't really mean record this
showing.  It just happens to have that side effect in many cases.
What pressing 'R' really means is change the record type for this
program to the next one.  For example, pressing 'R' on a program that
is already marked as kSingleRecord but was disable, would actually
change it to a kFindOneRecord.  I don't think thats what you want.
