Apparently not. See below. It "almost" works right with "Don't match 
duplicates". It looks to me, as if this case works right, if you haven't 
deleted the last recording of that show, yet.

Hm, I can't see any relation to my problem description, but if you say 
so and it's fixed... ;-)

My bigger problem with the scheduler at the moment is with the duplicate 
matching of movies, as written in my other mail "Duplicate checking for 
movies does not work anymore".
