It's also possible, since it's set from the frontend, that the choice 
you make there is tied to the recordings made by the backend/s for that 
particular frontend, recognised by its 'hostname' - although that may 
not be the preferred term now - as specified in one of the earlier 
frontend setup screens.  Anyway, it seems that you want to set up a 
system-wide default.
