Thanks, if that works it was too simple. I assumed priorities would only
come into effect if there was a conflict.
Now that I'm trying to edit the power search/recording rule I'm running
in to all kinds of problems. Nothing to do with the rules, but with the
After a bit of editing my cursor is not near the character I am typing
(10 characters away), if I paste the example by pressing the OK key on
my remote (can someone update the
docs..http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-12.html the "add this
example" key does not exist anymore) the text is not visible in the box,
or sometimes it is, but I can't get to the second line to edit. The
cursor key and the enter key move to the next field not to the next line
in the edit box.
Even though the text is invisible, the rule tests ok. The text must be
somewhere outside the screen. (Occasionally I see half a character,
outside the box on the far lefthand side of the screen).
Short queries seem to appear correct, but the ones that stretch over
multiple lines have those issues.
What is the trick here ?
