Description

I just migrated from 0.18 to 0.19 (SVN 9871) and all of my previously recorded programs started transcoding. I had to turn off the "allow transcoding jobs on this server" setting to stop it. There's a setting in setup to say "don't transcode any new programs", but there should also be a way to stop transcoding of previously recorded programs without having to disable transcoding completey.

Works for me. There is nothing in the code that would schedule new transcoding jobs for all your recordings. If you did have lots of transcoding jobs started, there were probably already jobqueue entries for them, since Myth only transcodes what you tell it to.
