[mythtv-users] Schedule recordings - when episodenr is in title?

Hi guys,

I'm using Mythtv-0.22+fixes, and was trying to record a show named:
showname 1:24

I chose, record this program in this timeslot every day - but 
unfortunately it only recorded the first one.
The reason seems to be that the next day, the show was called:
showname 2:24

I then tried to create a custom recording rule, matching on title: showname
but mythtv records the wrong showings of the show (f.ex. it has marked 
all of the 9:24 versions as "do not record" - and records the 8:24 
several times).

I figured I could make it check for duplicates based on title -but this 
is not an option, and I tried having mythtv using subtitle or 
description without success :(

For now I have manually set the recordings as "record once" up til the 
14. (I'm using EIT data).

Am I right in concluding that there's no other way when, when the shows 
has episode nr in title and no usable description/subtitle ?

And if so - shouldn't it be a feature request - to check for duplicates, 
based on title?
