 Replying to [comment:4 Dibblah]:
 > 212 is the rule shown in your screenshots.

 already been recorded is expected until it gets to maxepisodes.

 count towards the maxepisodes count.

 I have had this problem for weeks.  The old recording rule was set to max
 recordings: 10.  Yesterday there were twenty episodes recorded.  I deleted
 eleven of them.  Then I removed the old recording rule and made a new one.
 The new recording rule has the same exact settings as the old recording
 rule (max episodes ten).

 I will wait until the new recording rule reaches ten episodes and see what
 happens.  Please close this ticket.  I will request it reopened if I see
 the fail again.

 But this brings up a related topic.  The maximum number of episodes being
 tied to the specific recording rule is counter intuitive.  I assumed it
 was tied to the tribune/schedules direct unique title id for the show.  In
 fact I think that is how it use to work.  I'm sure I'm not the last user
 who will be confused by this logic.
