In the interest of balance, I should point out that if you can't abide 
the command line and insist on using the web pvr, you can rename and 
rearrange your files after downloading in order to satisfy XBMC, though 
it seems like it would be a pain.  Just be sure to set the "Download 
Meta-data" option under Recording is set to save metadata in "XBMC 
Episode" format.

And to answer your question above: web pvr settings are saved in a 
browser cookie - nothing to do with the get_iplayer preset facility.  So 
in effect the web pvr gives you only a single preset via "Save as Default".
