> I'm playing around with recording groups lately, mainly to solve the

> I've noticed two oddities in the recording screens though, that I  
> would consider bugs. But I figured I should ask here first, in case  
> I'm missing some rationale behind the current behavior.
> 1) All recordings still show up in the "Default" group, even though  
> I have assigned them to different groups. This gets me two redundant  
> entries in the group list, "Default" and "All Recordings". Besides  
> redundancy, I would really like to keep the Default group for all  
> recordings that are not for a certain user.
> 2) If I choose to display the groups in the recordings screen, and  
> also choose to not show the LiveTV recordings, the LiveTV group  
> still shows up. If I don't choose to display the groups, the LiveTV  
> recordings don't show up, as expected, unless I explicitly ask for  
> them through the group filter.
> There is also some wishlist of things I'd like to have in the  
> recordings screen, that I'm going to add to the wiki, unless someone  
> tells me that they don't make any sense for some reason:
> - Sort groups and categories before recordings, i.e. when showing  
> both groups (or categories, though I don't use them) and individual  
> recordings, everything is sorted in alphabetically order. Having the  
> groups always on top, maybe with a separator below, seems more  
> intuitive to me.
> - An iTunes-like column interface for recordings. I'm not sure if  
> this is really giving any benefit, once the recording groups work  
> like I'd expect them to work. The idea is to incrementally filter  
> all recordings by picking filters from filter lists. First there is  
> a list of available filters (groups, categories, years, directors,  
> whatnot) and a list of all recordings below. If I pick a filter  
> category, I get a list of all filter values in that category. If I  
> pick a value, I again get a list of all left-over filter categories,  
> and below the list of recording that match the current filters, etc.
