I just built 0.22 yesterday (or maybe the day before).  Looking at SVN I
don't see any changes that have been committed to 0.22-fixes since I
pulled about 48 hours ago.  So no, it's not fixed in the current

I guess I can wait for 0.23, but it's annoying this changed. :(

I suppose I could go figure out where the hook is and try to fix it
myself, or figure out the 0.23 change and try to backport it.  But
honestly I'd like to get the HDHR issue fixed first; this one is just an
annoyance as opposed to a "fails to record my shows" blocker.

Thanks for the info,
