Custom Recordings don't respect max episodes

I had a recording rule to record all episodes of Law & Order up to 6 max episodes (recordid 123). I created a new custom rule to record all programs whose title was 'Law & Order' and hdtv flag was 1 (recordid 456) up to 6 episodes. I then deleted rule 123. I already had 6 episodes recorded so when the scheduler ran I expected it NOT to schedule any new episodes but instead it tried to schedule them. The only way I could trick the scheduler into respecting the max episodes was to go to the DB and change the value of recordid (456) to the deleted rule's id (123).

I think the scheduler should respect the max episodes by title/subtitle and not include the recordid in the calculation.

Thanks! Doug

On second thought, I could see how you might have a custom recording that works on multiple shows - in that case you would want max episodes to be for the rule and not for the show. I think that makes sense. Is there any way to indicate that you want to do both? I guess you'd have to update the rows in the recorded table to use the new recordid so that they would match... hmmm... Is there a smarter way to do this?

Thanks! Doug
