Hika thanks. Ofcourse that does not help me! The News may record on any or all or any combination of the channels on their mux.
It turns out that having made a custom rule to record AShow starting between TimeA and TimeB [record] lets one select “all showings” etc “one showing per week” etc,

For the very naive me of a few weeks ago:

Custom Record and [test] are easy and very powerful.
MythWeb either php or mythbackend:6544 are NOT as nice as mythfrontrnd for setting a custom rule.

I’m naive instead of very naive and do not consider myself capable, but we really need a wiki article on custom recording.
