That is a handy feature if you want to tie up a tuner at a specific time
but are not really interested in the recording. For example - your sat
box phones home at 4am every morning. You schedule a high priority
recording at 4am for 5 minutes with a priority on that sat box tuner and
direct it into the deleted group. Now the scheduler will work your real
recordings around that time.
