[mythtv-users] how to restart a recording

Good Morning, All:

As it turns out, my wife is more of an Olympics addict than I ever thought
she would be, and has set my system to record everything olympic.  The
problem with that is it's quickly overwhelming my 168gb recordings folder
(things recorded earlier in the day are now autoexpiring to free up the disk
space).  I enabled another storage on a 1TB LVM I have on my network, and
I've set my shows to record to it in the future, but the problem I face now
is that the shows that were recording while I took my backend down to set
the storage group won't start recording again.  They show as "recorded" and
I've done all I know to do to allow them to rerecord (I deleted the files
using the "delete and allow re-record" option) but now they won't start
recording again.  I assume this is becasue Myth wants to wait until the next
time the show airs, but obviosly that doesn't work in this case.  So all I
want to do is tell my machine to "start recording this right now, no matter
what you think about whether you've already recorded it or not..." and I
don't know how to do it.  Any tips?
