There's currently no way to do what you want although it's been discussed
a few times. We tossed around the idea of allowing sql-type "LIKE"
expressions in the title/subtitle/description fields and using "like"
in the query instead of "=". The function you're looking for is
ScheduledRecording::findAllProgramsToRecord(), but that's not all
that would need to be modified to integrate this fully. There are quite
a few places that look for exact title/subtitle/description matches that
would have to be modified probably. And you'd need to add a way to edit
the match strings also.
Have at it... :) Patches definitely welcome in this case.
