I have this behaviour with my 3 weekly record rules created before
updating to current (10943) SVN.

In MythWeb's Upcoming Recordings, any weekly rules that do not have a
matching program in the next week's listings (wrt the day of the week
the rule is set to) appear as deactivated recordings with note "This
show does not match the current programme listings." which is also how
the Upcoming Recordings list in the frontend behaves.

However, in MythWeb EPG, each of the 3 weekly record rules (none are
currently matching any programs in the current listings) have resulted
in changes to the titles of the programs that occupy the timeslot that
these rules match against - but only for the next potential recording.
I do not have enough future listings data to see whether titles are
changed for the week after next, but viewing the listings that still
exist for yesterday evening (Monday) shows that the title of a
different show in a matching timeslot for one of the rules shows the
\correct\ program title for the actual program transmitted, not that
of the rule.

I've tried to create new weekly record rules to see the same behaviour
but so far have not managed to observe either the subsequent week's
different program having its title replaced with that of the weekly
rule, or the unmatched program appearing in MythWeb's Upcoming list
for the subsequent week.

Whilst on the subject of MythWeb doing odd things, does anyone see the
behaviour I am seeing with search results and channel listings as
documented here:
