Description

I love, love, love the Automatic Recorder feature of tvheadend (so much so that any media centre software without an equivalent should hang its head in utter shame), but it's disappointing that whilst a rule can have a regexp for the programme title and a set of checkboxes for the day of the week, you can't specify multiple channels with one rule.

There are several programmes I record in the UK that are on multiple channels (e.g. Formula 1, athletics and other sports) and I have to put a separate rule in for each channel showing each sport. Hence, I'd like a way to specify multiple channels with one rule - probably a set of checkboxes like the day of the week would do.

This would be a serious enhancement to the Automatic Recorder for hopefully not too much coding time.

I also missed this feature so I created a simple workaround. In channel tags create a new channel tag and enable a set of channels for the original request a 'sports channels' tag with all the sports channels enabled. Then in the automatic recorder tab select the 'sports channels' tag and it will only record programs if they are broadcast by one of your sports channels.
