Recipe auto-send - limit the device sent to?

Is there a way of limiting the device that a recipe is sent to with "Automatically send downloaded news to e-book reader" enabled.

I've got a Kobo for reading books and an Android tablet that I read news recipes on. The tablet connects automatically each morning with Calibre Companion a little while after the scheduled recipe runs. Occasionally CC doesn't connect on some days (usually flat battery on the tablet!) and then if I plug the Kobo in to load a new book on the same day it gets that last recipe. Which of course, I don't want on the Kobo. And then of course the recipe doesn't auto-load on to the tablet because Calibre, I assume, knows it's already been "sent" somewhere. (Out of curiosity, how is that "I've been sent" thing managed?)

The only tweak I've been able to find is send_news_to_device_location which only specifies the location on the device.

No there is no builtin way. The problem is the older devices have no way to uniquely identify them, so this is hard to build robustly. I think the reading list plugin might do the trick though.
