No... this one threw me at first, but look closely - kDupCheckSubDesc will
actually satisfy 2 of the conditions. It satisfies BOTH these conditions: 

	(dupmethod & kDupCheckSub) && subtitle != "" 
      (dupmethod & kDupCheckDesc) && description != ""

Note the bitwise & -  kDupCheckSub is 2, kDupCheckDesc is 4 so
kDupCheckSubDesc, being 6 actually satisfies BOTH of the bitwise AND
conditions. Clever trick that!

So, yeah, the change you suggested should work. I've provided a patch anyway
- tested and working.

I'll go and attach it to the ticket now. 

Thanks for pointing it out!

The 'Never Record' button isn't displayed for upcoming recordings which use 
the kDupCheckSubThenDesc method. Now I can easily add the following which I 
reckon would fix the problem, but I must be missing something.

((dupmethod & kDupCheckSubThenDesc) && (subtitle != "" || 
description != "")) ||

With the kDupCheckSubDesc method the button is shown even though it seems it

should fail all the tests. (The programid is empty and the category_type is
