Yeah I got it solved :$

The program didn't have a subtitle, so setting duplicate method to
'Description' worked, I would have thought that 'Subtitle/Description
would have done the job even if Subtitle is blank, but that's just me.
Was the Description only option part of 0.17/0.18 cause I don't
remember having it in 0.16.

I know I used to have some problems with episodes that did have a
subtitle, I will try one of these and see if I got it sorted with the
oldrecorded clean-up.

Thanks for the help.
