Yes, that is how it's suppose to work. Can I assume that you have
been using the MythCenter that you checked-in? Because it doesn't
handle the distinction between record_font, recording_font and the
active font. The things that are rsWillRecord are supposed to
be in a color to distinguish "normal recordings" in, say, green.
Recording in progress in red or purple and things are not slated
to record but should be seen in white.

If you've been MythCenter, see any other theme. You'll see on the
conflict page (proglist, Recording Priorities, etc.) that things that
will record are clearly marked. Things that are not going to record
but should be shown are white and easily distinguished such as rules
with no recordings scheduled on the Recording Priorities page.

Actually, I was fixing some problems with MythCenter earlier today
and just finished tinker with the record_font and recording_font.
Also, menus six items, respace the menu layout to look a little
more balanced, action area and text area safe, and... the truly
odd choice of using a brown and orange qtlook with a blue theme
with green highlights (I thing the guy didn't know what to do other
than take the G.A.N.T. qtlook.txt file =).

Anyway, here is what I have so far.
