Actually, I have a item on my TODO about something just like this.  This
year I setup a 'Pilot Episodes' recording rule to pick up new shows.  I
want these in my 'Default' recording group so I don't have to switch groups
to look for new shows.  I've thought about making a virtual title with the
name of the scheduled recording for searches like the 'Pilot Episodes' rule.
This way I could see the normal titles, but also quickly see what Pilot
Episodes had been recorded without having to scroll down through my other
50+ distinct titles in my Default Recording Group.  This could be treated
similar to the current ability to view recordings by their category.
