Basically, what happened was that I noticed the hockey game I was 
recording was going to run late and for the first time I was going to 
take advantage of the ability to extend an in-progress recording.  I 
went to MythWeb and didn't see an option to do it so I did it from my 
frontend machine.  I noticed that the way the recording is extended is 
to add an override.  With that in mind I then went to MythWeb just to 
try it from there (now that I knew it was nothing more than an override 
to be created).

When I select the program it loads the details page, but the override 
options are not presented, instead I get a message in red at the top 
saying, "This program is already scheduled to be recorded via a custom 

The display of the override options is suppressed by the if block 
starting at line 44 of modules/tv/detail.php.  This if block prints the 
red message and unsets the $schedule variable.  With $schedule set to 
NULL, the override options are suppressed.

I was going to just create a new recording rule with the extended 
recording time, but wasn't sure if that was going to work (nor did I 
try it in fear of messing up the in-progress recording).
