The attached patch, mythtv-8101-change_always_stream_to_stream_from_local_backends.patch , changes the "Always stream recordings from the backend" setting to do what Stuart M wants it to do (and changes its related help text to reflect the change in purpose). I've done only basic testing of the patch and verified that on a single system with a combined backend and frontend, it does as he wants. I don't know if the change would have any adverse effects on other configurations.

Pushing back since we're in a feature freeze and this changes the historical behavior/meaning of the setting, and since which approach is preferred is still undetermined.
