    Hi there, I have lots of Series recordings set up (100+). Is there a way to
    easily change them all from High quality down to Good quality, without
    manually editing each Series?

    I'm thinking of an 'edit this text file and find/replace x with y...' kind
    of solution.

    If there is a way to do it in the GUI, I'd like to know too. Unfortunately,
    the default recording quality setting only helps for recordings that are set
    up after the setting is choosen.

    I laughed when my brother forgot to change his default recording quality
    before adding his 30+ tv series last fall.

    Hmm, well I found the recordings.xml file which mentions all my Series
    passes and has settings therein for: quality="3" etc.

    I did a find and replace for them all to quality="1", however Media Center
    itself did not notice or reflect this change, and still reports all my
    Series as "Better" or "Best" instead of "Good", which is what I believe '1'
    is.

    Any ideas anyone 'in the know'?

    Yeah, and I'm sure you remember getting a slap upside the head when you
    laughed at me having to manually change all those series settings one series
    at a time.
