The listings at http://tvcabo.pt/Televisao/ListaProgramas.aspx include
programme descriptions but not subtitles. You should be able to set
your Power Search rule above to 'Record on any channel' and duplicate
method to 'Subtitle then description' (or just 'Description' if you
are sure they will never include subtitle information).

You can test your Power Search either in the rule creation dialog, or
on one of the sub-menus of the Recording Options for the rule. You can
see a list of upcoming recordings for the rule, which will show how
well the title and duplicate detection is working.
