I've been wondering this too.
I have a search recording or whatever it's called, the one where you can
type in a custom sql WHERE expression.
The recording rule is set to search for a few words in the description and
it is set to match dupes on subtitle and description.

But it still records the same episode several times even when it has
identical subtitle (usualy empty) and identical descriptions.
