This is one of the better arguments I've heard so far since right now I
assume Max Episodes doesn't work for search records.

I'm not opposed to changing the current Max Episodes functionality to work
by recordid instead of by title.  I wonder about detaching the recorded
record from it's recordid though since that could have other negative
effects such as not being able to edit the scheduled recording anymore
from the Watch Recordings screen.
