Ok, I had suspected that.   Thanks for the confirmation.   It would seem
that for shows that are actually recorded, the actual audio properties
should override what's provided by the EPG.

For example, if I have my recording device configured to record audio
using the analog stereo connectors, then my recording is in stereo.
When I'm looking at the list of my recordings, I'd like to know how they
were recorded.  I don't necessarily care about how the show was
broadcast.   Right?
