When I setup this recording, I set the duplicate check method to "none" 
since I
always wanted it to record once a week, but only once a week, 
regardless of the
original air date, etc.  With that setup, the scheduler has scheduled the
program to record Wednesday, even though it has already recorded it earlier
today.  If I change the duplicate check method to something else then the
scheduler identifies the Wednesday airing as already recorded and skips 
it. Shouldn't I be able to get the desired effect without making it 
check for

Help appreciated,
