[mythtv-users] One show recorded but two identical entries appear in recorded programs

I don't use the LiveTV feature (I get an unable to initialize video error when I hit ctrl-r; but that's for another day). 

My double listings are happening on scheduled recordings. These are manual record, daily, at 5am, on the same channel each day. They also happened when I scheduled single recordings, but not as consistently.

For instance, I manually scheduled single record (because I don't have my IRblaster working yet, I have to change channels manually for now) consecutive showings of the crocodile hunter and titled them 'croc 1', 'croc 2', etc. These were all doubled up in the listing. When I setup a recording for a different show (labeled 'pride fighting championship 1') with a different title, it only listed once in the recorded listings. These were all setup for channel 3 at different times.

The duplicates are linked together as evidenced by my deleting one of them and having both entries disappear.

Is this happening only on LiveTV shows that you record (by pressing R)?
