[mythtv-users] Temporarily stopping all recording

   Here's a question that I haven't found an answer to.

   I'm in the process of moving and shut my cable off.  I'll be using the same 
cable system after the move, so the MythTV box will migrate over nicely.

   But I'll be without cable for a couple of weeks.  That's no real problem, 
since the Myth data partition has tons of shows recorded on the drive that I 
haven't watched.

  The problem comes from Myth recording shows according to my schedule -- 
simply because the coax is now dead/off and it records nothing but static.

   My question is this: Is there a way I can tell MythTV "don't record 
anything" without deleting my carefully entered recording schedules?  (Right 
now I'm just start/stopping the backend daemon, but that's a PITA.)

   TIA for the whack with the clue-bat.
