 This instance of US OTA channels contain two channels with unique channel
 numbers (and service IDs) but the same call sign and channel name.

 **Problem:** Recording rules for "record all showing" with "don't match
 duplicates" will show two schedule items but only record one instance of
 the show.  Additionally, the user is unable to set up two separate
 recordings using the "this channel" filter.  This behavior is new as of a
 recent (weeks or within a month) update and undesirable.

 **Expected Behavior:** Until a recent update the behavior was for the
 recording rule to record the duplicate instances concurrently.  This can
 be advantageous in cases where one channels signal quality is reduced
 while the other channel is not impacted.

 **User Workaround and Additional Info:** Changing the call sign and
 channel name to unique values corrected this behavior (unsure which did
 the trick).  With a unique call sign and channel name for every channel
 upcoming recordings shows two duplicate recordings instead of one
 recording.

 Conjecture: It appears the recording rules migrated away from using the
 channel IDs and now use the call signs or channel names.  This may be a
 similar issue or related to bug #12330.  This may also be related to
 Changeset 43f9336f4d.
