I believe Myth looks at the upcoming recordings to decide how it was
started.  If you have the "stay on x minutes before recording" setting
set to 20 minutes, then any upcoming recording scheduled within the
next 20 minutes will cause myth to think it was started automatically.
 If there are no upcoming recordings in that window, myth thinks it
was started manually.
