From my messing around, I think the list of groups comes from a query to
either the 'record' or 'recorded' table that finds all distinct entries for
recgroup in all of the rows. To answer your question to get rid of it, you
may just have to move all of your recordings to something other than "" for
the group as well your recording schedules. You could also manually edit
the tables or run a query on the database if you're brave (and backup
first). Something like
UPDATE record SET recgroup = 'News' WHERE recgroup = ''
Make 'News' whatever you want, and '' is two single quotes not one double
quote (your problem is an empty group right, not two double quotes?). Then
run again on the recorded table.
