In 0.27 the rule affected only the channel I selected while in trunk it scheduled the channel I selected and the other channel showed "single recording - other channel". That "other showing" thing prevents me from creating a second "record this showing" rule as a backup which is my complaint.

Please provide some specific examples if you can, preferrably
involving major US networks that I already have in my lineups.  I'm so
busy right now I can barely see straight and really can't afford the
time to haphazardly try to reproduce the problem.

Anyway, I seriously doubt it's a change in the scheduler proper.  I'm
more inclined to believe it's a bad reporting problem dealing with the
"other channel" reporting logic, which was changed by another
developer recently.
