Hi Chris,

I just started work on the patch (my first for mythtv).  Before I go too 
far I just wanted to check if you approve of the first step.  The patch 
is attached, and so far I've done the following:

    * Refactored the code that checks if we're in the job window into a
      new method - bool InJobRunWindow()
    * Use this in the job processing loop
    * This will also be used in the new HasPendingJobs() method.
    * Added shells of two new methods that I intend to call from

Any feedback, comments appreciated.  If you think I'm on the right 
track, I'll finish off the patch in the next few days.
