Unhappy No Custom Title Support for Timed Recordings

I am on latest stable 7.0.23.

I am in Australia and we commonly use C-band DVB-S on Asiasat 5 100E, Aisasat 3S 105E and Chinasat 6B 115E to get foreign news, European and Chinese programming.

There is no EPG available for these lineups.

As a result, we depend on Timed Recordings.

Now, back in the days when we used MythTV (i.e. a few days ago) and a Strong SRT4990 PVR (a week ago), we were able to assign titles to each manual timed recording schedule, such that you can actually identity what has been recorded.

It seems this feature is not available in SageTV

I read in another thread that one can change the guide data manually in the Web UI to achieve this. However, as or April 2010, Neim's Web UI has switched to targeting 7.1.2+. I am not in a position to switch to a Beta server, as I do not have the required time to debug issues due to work.

Is there any solution out of this problem?

I assume it would be extremely easy for the developers to add such a feature, It would be even better for the titles to be reflected back in the guide itself, so that you kind of create a virtual TV guide.

By the way, I have tried assigning a User Category with the same name as my desired title. However, it only assigns it to the next "airing", and not to all the recordings that are part of this schedule (i.e. one wants a recording that is MonTueWed each week, and one would hope that assigning the category to one of the items in the schedule will modify all of them, but it does not).
