As with all cutting edge software, documentation always lags a long time 
behind the actual software (writing software is fun, writing docs is not 
:).  Of course if you want to add to the manual... :)

The program priorities screen shows everything that has been set to be 
recorded so you can edit the recording preferences there.  Of course if 
the program is still on TV then you can just look it up in the program 
guide or the scheduled recordings screen and change it's settings there.

The grave stone means that the recording is set to be expireable, the 
dollar sign means that it has had the commercials flagged, a hammer means 
that the file is being transcoded.  Think theres one other symbol but 
can't remember what it is now...
