Schedule restore - minor bug

I saved my recording schedule prior to going on holiday and then deleted the daily recording schedule entries that I didn't want to build up whilst we were away. On return from holiday I restored the backup to reinstate the normal recording schedule.

This worked well for all the currently scheduled recordings with no duplicated entries but I noticed duplicate entries for the 4:20 wakeup reminder and all finished recording entries

This is no big deal - I can easily remove the duplicates but I thought I would mention the problemHumax HDR Fox T2 (Humax) - Mozilla Firefox 23062015 222518.jpg

Schedule restore presumes an empty canvas, and just adds the backed up schedule back in (hence duplicating anything that is already there). What is more of a surprise is anything not being duplicated.

The warning on schedule restore is:
Code:
Are you sure you wish to erase all scheduled recordings and favourite channels and then restore them from
Before holiday backup-2015-Jun-10-15:37?
Which implies the existing entries will be deleted by the restore process before the schedule is restored leading to no duplicates.

I actually like the fact that it did merge the old and new schedules since I didn't lose entries that I had added via RS whilst away but the merge of finished items and reminders didn't work as well as for active schedule entries.
