#5029 closed defect (invalid)

can't "never record" upcoming recordings without sub-titles

Description

With either the web interface or with mythfrontend, I can't seem to prevent an upcoming recording from being recorded with "Never Record" if that episode carry's only the "generic" episode information (for that show) and not any specific episode information.

I believe this is new in 0.21

Stuart, I don't mean to step on your toes by taking this report. It had gotten pushed way down on my TODO list when your status change caused me to take a quick look at it.

As reported, this bug is invalid. The "Never record" option isn't supposed to work with generic episodes since generics are explicitly excluded from duplicate detection. If the user doesn't want duplicates to be recorded, that can be controlled in the recording rule.

There is still a potential bug in that the "Never record" option shouldn't normally be presented for generic programs. There are some exceptions, though. One exception is for find type rules. To the original reporter, reopen this report and provide more details if you think the "Never record" option wasn't applicable in your case.

Maybe all I really wanted was to "Don't Record" that episode. I don't really recall the situation I was trying to work with way back then any more.

From the discussion in May: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/325329#325329 followed by http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/325543#325543 proposing a solution for what you probably wanted to do (and, no, it doesn't require using MythWeb to create the 2nd recording rule--just select a generic episode that's not selected by your exclude generics rule to set up the 2nd rule).
