Deleting an upcoming recording and avoid it ever being scheduled again
I have an autorec rule to record all movies that fulltext match some criteria (such as "action") with a log retention of "forever" and keep file until space is needed.
These recordings show up in the Upcoming tab. However, some of these movies I have seen before and don't want to waste time re-recording so I want to flag them as "do not record." I do not want that showing to record or any future repeat showing of that movie to record. In mythtv, there is a "never record" option that fakes a previous recording so all future broadcasts are considered duplicates. I cannot find similar functionality in tvheadend.
If I press the delete button on the Upcoming tab then the corresponding file is deleted from dvr/log.
When I edit the rule then the programme is rescheduled again.
I think that if the dvr/log file was kept then presumably it would not re-schedule the programme.
