Last year when I set up my mythbox using DD, my mythweb listings page for a
Sunday will show a title:subtitle like "NFL Football: Colts @ Titans". I
clicked on the title, selected "record any time on any channel" and I get
all (local OTA, since my mythbox is ATSC only)) NFL games recorded. Looking
at mythweb's Recording Schedules page, I have a schedule for "NFL Football"
on any channel. The switch to SD has not affected this at all. Too simple?
