Apparently "Don't match duplicates", but I do not remember, why.

The show is not running at the moment, so I now looked for another one 
to test.

This show is a news show and it airs daily at the same time. Subtitle is 
NULL (always with my grabber) and the description is always the same.

If I set "Match duplicates using description", apparently it records ONE 
recording only (not one per week). And since I recorded this show 
previously, it does not schedule any of it. Is that right?

If I set "Don't match duplicates", then it works OK. It records the 
first one each week.
But, there is something interesting: It wants to record tomorrow 
(friday) and from next week on each monday. But I have recorded that 
particular news show today (thursday), with "Record in this timeslot 
every day". Shouldn't it know that and not record tomorrow?

Anyway, there must have been something different with that older show. I 
will look into my archived grabber XMLs and write back.
