That's good.  It recognizes that they're the same channel, but with 
different channel numbers on different inputs.

Once again because they're the same channel.

So, why is it trying to record both of them?  It sounds like the 
duplicate check method is set to "None", so it records 
everything--whether it's already been recorded or not.
