all works fine now, at least when you use it right. I've been testing
this on a "test" system, which is actually in a different city than my
production system and I've had many challenges with that.  I don't
really have the same situation/setup there.  I've got a DVB tuner
instead of HDHomerun's, and I didn't have all the SDTV versions of the
channels over QAM mapped to the DVB tuner, and then I did, but had
failed to run mythfilldatabase again.  Anyway, long story short,
forget anything I ever said about that piece not working or about
needing a different GUI option.

I'll do some additional checking about recorded/oldrecorded entries to
see if anything is getting screwed up there.  I don't even think I
touched anything related to that, but I'm not really sure where all
the tentacles go.

What are the remaining steps/open items, then?

The ones I know of are:

* Continued testing for recorded/oldrecorded.
* Cleaning up the GUI -- Do I make the height one option higher to
account for the new select box?
* Cleaning up the GUI -- Any suggestions on wording of the options,
both on the recording details screen as well as in MythWeb ?
