Nothing is wrong with the EPG data, but maybe you need to run
mythfilldatabase to make sure it's up to date?

These shows have unique season/episode info, thus overriding

I just tried this by setting a record on all channels on any time just
like you, it marked the correct shows for recording (no dups) and when
setting episode 1 to "never record" it behaved correctly.

Since you said you just updated SVN, I assume you also updated MythWeb
so that there are no conflicts? Is it the same in mythfrontend?
