The priorities listing will include rules for which no matching
scheduled items exist.  Rules that were originally created from the
scedule will show just the show/movie name, while rules created using
the search tools will show the kind of search in brackets.  If you have
any Power Search items in your list, when you scroll to those items the
"Description" field will show the SQL query.  You can't edit the query
from within this menu, however - if it's wrong then you have to delete
the rule and go back to the search menu to create a replacement.
