In my case on Saturdays during the fall, College football is everywhere. A
number of the lesser channels fill their time with low-level teams games
and a lot of reruns.  So if I weed them out by channel then I've solved my
problem. At that point on Fridays I can look at the upcoming recordings for
games then I create the override rule for the matchups that I don't care

So with Peter's new Web App changes I can easily take care of my needs.
