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.

I've scheduled a pair of recordings on fixes/0.27. Both have the same non generic programid. As George says using a 'record only this showing' rule with default options on the first showing did not appear on the second recording and I was therefore able to schedule a second 'record only this showing' rule on the second recording. I will report back this evening as to whether the second showing does actually record or not. (I am on Australian DVB-T).

At this stage it is reporting that the second showing will record.

That was my understanding of the earlier comment in this thread from Mike, that the display was reporting that it would work when in fact it wouldn't work. Will see later this evening.
