I use "Record anytime on this channel', since that seems least likely
to miss a recording.  Duplicate detection generally works, though I
sometimes get two copies of each episode. It seems that the BBC
generally gives the initial showing different details from the first
repeat.  Subsequent repeats do however get correctly recognised and
are not recorded.  Changing duplicate detection to work on description
only fixed this in at least one case, but I don't usually bother.
Works well for reruns of old stuff that I 'm still catching up on (
Simpsons, King of the Hill), that tend to get shown at odd times.
