Play Recording Groups
You can play a collection of recordings for example all episodes of a particular series.
The recordings are organized into Recording Groups on the left of the screen. The Group "All Programmes" contains all recordings. Use the keys to select the recording group. Press the key to play that group of recordings
Play Individual Recordings
Individual recordings from each recording group are on the right of the screen. Use the keys to move between the Recording Groups and recordings. Once you are in the recordings pane, use the keys to move between recordings. Press the key to play that recording.
MythTV allows you to create Playlists of recordings. You can select complete recording groups to add to the playlist, or individual recordings. This is useful if you need to keep the kids entertained for more than a few hours.
