I'm simply saying if the primary purpose of that section of Myth is to
edit recording rules, it sure wastes a /lot/ of screen space on priority
stuff and doesn't provide any of the info that a "Recording Schedules"
page should (i.e. stuff that you'll see in MythWeb, like Channel,
Profile, Transcoder, and Recording Group--or whatever).

You can also go into Previously Recorded and edit recording rules by
hitting 'i' on an episode that was recorded (at any time in the past),
but I would still say that section is for managing recording
history--not for editing/deleting recording rules.

If someone wants a "view/edit existing recording rules" page, I think we
should create one that's designed for the task rather than just changing
the menu text for the one that takes you into a priority-centric view of
recording rules.
