In other words, if you schedule a recording of "The Simpsons" every day 
from 7:00 to 7:30, but your FOX affiliate only shows the Simpsons Monday 
- Friday, whatever's showing on Saturday and Sunday won't be a 
match--it's not "The Simpsons."  However, if for some reason they air 
the Simpsons on Saturday, you'll get it.  As a matter of fact, why not 
just record it at any time.  That way, Myth will record "The Simpsons" 
whenever it airs, and by choosing an appropriate duplicate check method, 
you'll get one copy of each episode.
