The search rule only determines which shows are candidates for 
recording, but doesn't imply any grouping for dupe detection.  
Since "L&O" and "L and O" are different series they are 
dupe-checked independently.

Is it marked as "previously recorded" or did it simply not make it 
into the candidate list?  I noticed that some shows actually change 
the title on special occasions.  I almost missed the finale of "The 
Apprentise" two seasons ago because the last episode was titled 
"The Apprentise - Season Finale" (or something like that) and I 
wasn't using a "LIKE" rule with a trailing % (to avoid shows like 
"The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz").
