[mythtv-users] Custom Schedule Help

I have a backend with two tuners.  One is a PVR-250 connected to a 
DirecTV box.  The other is a pcHDTV 3000 that receives ATSC over the air.

My goal is to create custom schedules so that either card can be used if 
it's free when recording regular local channels.  One such example is to 
record Judge Joe Brown which is shown at 12:00 pm and again at 12:30 pm 
on both channel 31 (KMAX) and channel 31_1 (KMAX_1).  Thus I have 
created the following power search

program.title = 'Judge Joe Brown'
AND channel.callsign IN ('KMAX','KMAX-1')

This almost accomplishes what I want.  However when the listing 
information is such that MythTV can not tell they are the same show, it 
records both.  Is there some way to tell MythTV to record one or the 
other?  I looked at the "Find and record one showing of this title each 
day" but that doesn't work for me as I really want two showings.
