Agreed.  Auto populating this field is a horrible "feature".  I'm sure
the functionality was added with good intentions.  But it is hugely
annoying to have Rambo 3 start playing after I stop watching Rambo 2.

To compound the above, the user interface for setting/disabling the
"next file" requires the user to scroll through the entire list of
video files currently indexed by mythvideo.  If you have multiple
seasons of long running TV shows in mythvideo, this list of files can
be quite long (mine is >9000 files).
