A couple other possibilities (and something I think we'd be open to
applying a patch for) would be to give the user the ability to:

1) choose a playback group to play a recording with from the Watch
   Recordings popup Menu.

2) allow the user to pick a playback group from the OSD popup menu
   during playback.

or maybe even a third option, to apply a playback group to a recording
group.  Maybe your wife wants 60/5 FFW/REW skip and no auto-skip and
you want 120/10 FFW/REW w/ auto-skip turned on.

I have a 'Default' Playback Group, it's title is empty, so as far as I
know, it applies to all recordings.  I'm not sure what you're talking
about with this.

I do agree more playback controls could move into Playback Groups.
Patches welcome.  The current implemention was a starting point, we're
normally open to enhancements. :)
