Hmmm.  David Shay was working on adding this ability to Myth ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/281219#281219 ), but 
seems to have gotten too busy with real life.  I hope he sees your post 
(and am mentioning primarily in case his system filters/highlights 
messages with his name :).

That would be a good approach for it.

I'd guess there's probably a way to do it with the custom recording 
rule, but I'm not nearly as knowledgeable about it as Bruce Markey, so I 
couldn't tell you how.  :)

Thanks for the update.
