My apology.   I have a patch (not checked into mythtv CVS) that
adds a 'suggested' column to the myth database so that suggestions can
be more reliably told from human requested recordings.    The
schema number got high enough that you started using it.

I am altering how it is enabled, you can fix this by commenting out
or removing these lines:

        if( $mythTVDBVersion > 1141 ) {
            $extrafields .= ", suggested ";
            $extraparams .= ", ? ";
            push( @storeargs, $envir->{"suggested"} || 0 );

Around like 1180.

The mythtv database schema version system does not really support
parallel development of code that adds features to the database.
(And I've been slow.)

I have also uploaded a version with appropriate changes to my web site.
