I'm not at my mythfrontend at the moment, but aren't the recording
quality and transcode quality settings different? It makes sense that
only recording groups can have quality settings for the record,
because you can't really re-record at a different size/bitrate just by
moving which group the recording is in.
I think the transcode quality options are by recording profiles, though, IIRC.
You may also want to try out a few and see how much difference there
really is between the different options. I think that
MPEG2->(MPEG4|RTJPEG) is the biggest jump, and telling it what quality
level to transcode at is a much smaller change.
