Yeah, now people who don't do their homework won't notice the LiveTV 
recordings so instead of, "Why does it record all my LiveTV when I 
didn't tell it to?" we'll get "Myth is leaking files onto my system.  I 
deleted all my recordings and my 2TB LVM/RAID is full."  Of course, 
there will be a few who actually look at the filesystem and see a bunch 
of NUV's/MPG's and they'll say, "Myth isn't deleting the file when I 
delete a recording," or "Myth is recording some files that I didn't tell 
it to record and that don't show up in the program list."  ;)

Oh well, I guess we have to give people something to complain about...

Makes LiveTV use the LiveTV recording group:

Adds a setting to allow you to show LiveTV in All Programs and defaults 
the setting to hidden:
