I think we'll need some more information here. Are you editing an existing rule? We only try to look up the program info for new rules which don't have an existing recording rule ID.

There would have to be no recording rule id, no recorded id (rule isn't being edited for existing recording and both the chanid and starttime would have to be specified to reach this code.

High - I am definitely editing an existing rule and the changes I am making, work both in Mythweb and the frontend it is only the Wenfrontend that has the problem on my system. If you are happy that this functionality works ok there must be something different about my environment. I build from source and may have something missing. Please confirm that this functionality is ok with you and if so i will try the prebuilt binaries on my system. My build info

Further info (even weirder). Basically works fine on a new rule but not one that has been used. A newly created rule works fine. An existing rule for a series which still has future recordings does not work. The simplest change is to use the 'Disable Rule' option on the 'Rrcording Rules' page, this works on a new rule and not on a 'used' rule. No error is logged. Attempting to change priority, again works for a new rule but not for a used one with the Error: Program does not exist. Is there a debugging option that might give more info? Regards John Baker
