What format does syndicatedepisodenumber have?
Does the scheduler use partnumber/parttotal or syndicatedepisodenumber or is
only used in the program guide?

I'm not sure i can tell the difference between those two cases from the
guide data i have.
Sometimes i have only the current episode and sometimes i have both current
and total.

I'll see if i can figure something out, if not i'll stick with

What i meant was if the subtitle is empty, create a subtitle based on the
episode numbers.
This is so you can set a recording to use dupe matching on subtitle only
since the desctiption may change between repeats of the same show.
