Not pushed yet, but working on it for v30.0. So far the commit message will read
(and these have all been tested):

Services API: Adds Dvr/UpdateRecordedMetadata

Parameters. The 1st is required and at least one optional
parameter must be supplied or the endpoint returns false:

     RecordedId          uint, selects the recording to update

     AutoExpire          true/false
     BookmarkOffset      uint
     BookmarkOffsetType  position, duration or not even sent
                         (requires BookmarkOffset)
     Damaged             true/false
     Description         string
     Episode             uint
     Inetref             string
     OriginalAirDate     yyyy/mm/dd
     Preserve            true/false
     Season              uint
     Stars               0-10
     SubTitle            string
     Title               string <---------------------------
     Watched             true/false

Dvr/SetSavedBookmark and Dvr/UpdateWatchedStatus will log a
warning announcing that they're deprecated.

This too doesn't change the title in oldrecorded.
