Record This Showing Wrongly Applies Default Filters -Resulting in Obscure Failure

Cc: Ticket locked: no


When trying to record a single showing of a program at a specific time the filters in the default recording template are in my view wrongly applied. The behaviour should be that the recording is always scheduled, if resources are available. Examples would be attempting to record an SD broadcast with an HD default set, or outside prime time with that filter set. The frontend interface is the most helpful as it displays the currently active filters but both mythweb and the webfrontend fail silently. The status of "not listed" is shown by the webfrontend when hovering over the program in the listing. These zombie recording rules do not show up in mythweb with duplicates/ignored set and do not show up in the webfrontend under conflicted/failed schedules, they do appear in all scheduler matches.

Filter application currently has no notion of what rules types are or should be applicable. FWIW, I think having different, initial templates for rules types would be a better approach. Unless and until any of that is done, if you set filters that are not suitable for some rule types, you should be aware of that and change them as needed or choose a different template when creating the new rule.
