It's easy enough to just look at (or even sort by) the "Type" column of
the Recording Schedules page in MythWeb.

Note, though, that Find One rules are automatically cleaned up for you.
It's done by mythfilldatabase in 0.20-fixes and below, so make sure
you're running it "occasionally"--even if you're using EIT only or No
grabber sources only.
