AFAIK according to the DVB standard it is perfectly legal to have different 
titles for different episodes/events in a series.

With better/any "record series" support, this issue would not exist.Also it 
would allow for improvements to the recording GUI (series could be handled 

Personally I'd much rather fix the issue in a general way, rather then just 
adding a fixup for my provider.
