Basically, what happened was that I noticed the hockey game I was
recording was going to run late and for the first time I was going to
take advantage of the ability to extend an in-progress recording. I
went to MythWeb and didn't see an option to do it so I did it from my
frontend machine. I noticed that the way the recording is extended is
to add an override. With that in mind I then went to MythWeb just to
try it from there (now that I knew it was nothing more than an override
to be created).
When I select the program it loads the details page, but the override
options are not presented, instead I get a message in red at the top
saying, "This program is already scheduled to be recorded via a custom
The display of the override options is suppressed by the if block
starting at line 44 of modules/tv/detail.php. This if block prints the
red message and unsets the $schedule variable. With $schedule set to
NULL, the override options are suppressed.
I was going to just create a new recording rule with the extended
recording time, but wasn't sure if that was going to work (nor did I
try it in fear of messing up the in-progress recording).
