Potential for incorrect error message if a Watch Recordings view filter contains zero entries

Description

This issue has become more apparent since the new LiveTV functionality and the ability to filter between regular and LiveTV recordings. I believe it could also cause some confusion amongst users. I assign this to cpinkham as I am not sure whose remit this falls under, and recording groups seems more specific than MythUI.

Running SVN10424, if I enter the Watch Recordings list, and then filter the view to show only LiveTV recordings, I can readily delete them after watching/reviewing them. However, when I delete the last LiveTV recording, Watch Recordings displays the message "You Haven't Scheduled Any Recordings" which is not true at all. If I then switch the filter back to the default view, all regular recordings reappear as normal.

Would it not make sense to update the message in this scenario to something more useful like "No recordings were found with the current filter. Please choose a different filter" if the current filter is obscuring other available recordings?

I guess this needs to be checked against the other possible usages of the view filter feature to make it clear whether i) the filter returned an empty set of recordings; ii) there are no recordings on the system but rules exist; and iii) there are neither recordings nor rules on the system.

Thanks, Nick
