Ideally this entire setup would respect and mirror the default viewing
mode and current viewing mode of Watch Recordings and present the list
in the same groupings and filters and allow application of both as
needed. I tend to change between recording groups a lot ("Our shows"
vs. "My shows") so adding in extra steps to change recording groups
wasn't something I really wanted right off the bat as I hadn't come up
with a good UI for doing it.
I can certainly see the concerns for the LiveTV and password protected
groups. Perhaps as a start, we could simply mirror the LiveTV setting
from the database in regards to filtering and skip password protected
groups until a proper OSD interface for entering the PIN is available.
I can see filtering by current recording group once a good UI for
switching groups is determined as well. With only two levels of OSD
workable on the screen, it makes some things more difficult for complex
choices like this.
