I have (but no longer use) a ReplayTV and there are exactly
zero features from it that I would miss. Amongst it's many
missing features or mis-features is that there was no list
of the shows that are scheduled to record (unbelievable!).

In mythfrontend, TV->Schedule Recordings->Recording Priorities.
This lists everything that is in the 'record' table including
single record shows. It also serves the purpose of comparing
and modifying the priority rankings as well as access to the
options page for each show.

I agree that mythweb should have this too but it should probably
have the same name and facility for managing priorities.

In 0.14, any outdated single records will be cleaned up by
mythfilldatabase each night. But you're right, outdated series
need to be removed from a list of all 'record' entries which
you can do from Recording Priorities.
