Could these be 2-hr episodes broken into 1-hr parts (as those would 
legitimately be different programids, but could have identical subtitle 
and description)?  Or, perhaps they're some kind of extended or enhanced 
episode?  Or, perhaps the data will be updated when you re-download the 
listings for July 27th.  Though you shouldn't do this regularly, you can 

mythfilldatabase --refresh-all

to see if it's just because the data has been updated since you 
downloaded it a week ago.
