This would not help.  For some shows there are over 3 episodes in a 7
day period and each episode shown several times, 1 new episode and a
load of repeats.  The description is unreliable as it can be
re-written for repeats sometimes (UK radio times).    Recording an
episode and the next one that is over 7 days later could pick up

Anyone know the algorithm it is using?
