The problem, I think, is with priorities. Myth doesn't seem to
understand equal priorities so well...it will ALWAYS favor something.
If the priority modifiers end up the same, then it will just favor the
recorder defined first. So that's my guess...even though you could
manually rearrange them to get the same results, for some reason it
favors one of those shows and doesn't want to bump it to a
less-favored recorder.
