Jump directly to a specific Recording Group

It is possible to jump directly to a specific Recording Group when opening the Watch Recordings screen. This can be useful in base themes for creating a menu button to display the 'Deleted' recgroup for instance, and it can be used by individual users to create menu buttons for their own custom recording groups. This new ability is enabled by appending the recording group name in the <action> in the menu button entry.


  • <action>TV_WATCH_RECORDING</action> (Default/current usage)
  • <action>TV_WATCH_RECORDING Deleted</action> (Show Deleted RecGroup)
  • <action>TV_WATCH_RECORDING Dad</action> (Show Dad's RecGroup)

If there are no entries in the given recgroup, the user will be presented with a blank list rather than Myth popping up the Recording Group chooser. If there is a password set on the given recgroup then the password prompt will be displayed.
