No problem, that was probably just by mistake anyway..

Let  me  then  suggest  that  you  put  some  kind  of "warning" in the schedule
recording page to let the user know that this program _won't_ record even tho it
looks  like  that  in  there,  and where to ire-enable it. If i where to correct
something  like this as a user, I think i'd go to the scheduling page instead of
resolve conflicts.

Didn't  know that. Then I've got a little suggestion for you Isaac: make r bring
up  the  pretty  OSD menu and let you choose what to do: All the normal rectypes
plus "Recorord this showing including the shit i've already seen" ;)

Just kidding, but making it a menu would probably be a good idea.
