No problem :-)

Tbh I'm not sure why the 'Yes' option is available as a choice. Why 
would you ever want to go through this logic path?

// pseudo code, compare 'this' recording to 'other' recording for 
equality when searchtimer 'compare sub-title' option is set to 'yes'
boolean equals(Recording other) {
   if (this.subtitle == null || other.subtitle == null) {
     return false;
