Mythweb doesn't yet support search-type recordings.  Just haven't had 
the time to put them in.


> When I use the "Don't Record" option from the Upcoming Recordings screen in

> table. MythWeb correctly displays them with a red box and all is well and
> the recording doesn't happen.
> Using the Activate or Default options from MythWeb correctly removes the
> type=8 entry and the show is back in the schedule (i.e. removing the
> override entry).
> If I use the Don't Record option from MythWeb however, it creates the type=8
> entry in the DB but neither MythWeb or MythTV recognise it as a disabled
> recording.

> 2) MythWeb creates copies the search column whereas MythTV leaves it as 0.

> All record entries with (search=0) work fine in both MythWeb and MythTV.
> It's only the search=2 ones that are broken.
