On the Scheduled Recording screen (Conflict Resolution) the rightmost column
shows the tuner currently scheduled to do the recording. I recently upgraded
to 0.14 and notice that now there is other information also offered in that
column. Instead of tuner numbers, for deactivated shows I see letters such as
A, R, and V.
I took a quick walk through the code and didn't find the meaning of these
codes, nor did I find them explained in the docs. If I missed them, please
point me to where they are explained. ;)
"A" seems to be for programs that "will not be recorded because another
program was automatically chosen to be recorded instead." I assume this is
the basic conflict situation, when there are more programs with the same
priority than there are tuners. Is this correct?
"R" seems to be for programs that "will not be recorded because another
program with a higher recording priority will be recorded." Is this the same
as "A", except for the conflicted shows having different priorities?
"V" seems to be for programs that "will not be recorded because it is covered
by another scheduled recording for the same program." Does this mean that the
program is in fact scheduled to be recorded, but at another time? I have "V"
show up for programs that don't appear anywhere else on the schedule, so I'm
unsure that this means what it seems to. Actually, so far every time I see
"V" I see it twice for the same program in the same timeslot. I don't know
why some programs are listed twice, but when they do they are deactivated and
show "V". So far I haven't found any way to record a show that shows "V",
there is no option to "record it anyway."
I do notice that now I never see any conflicts highlighted in yellow, these
codes seem to have replaced highlighting. Is this so?
Are there other codes that I haven't seen yet? If so what are they?
