Sounds good, but I'd switch dynamically between "title - subtitle" and
"title <one of two season/episode number formats> subtitle".

If I understand correctly that is how it works over here, so that would
be a bugfix. (I sometimes have one entry "UPDATE_FILESIZE <channel> 
<start time> 0" instead of the list)
After looking at mythweb I'm wondering if you are referring to selecting
something else then "All Groups" in the first pull down list and still
showing all recordings in the "Recordings" list?

I like the idea, but I have rules like "Record all with actor X" and
"Record all movies in HD that got a good rating". Can you extend it to
also consider recordings with program_type=movie?
If the idea is to offer "all movies" I'd give it a name that says so.
