I set the recording settings for my kids shows to:

Record at any time on any channel    (here in oz, ABC1, ABC2, ABC3 often 
have the same program on multiple channels at different times)
Duplicate Check Method: *Subtitle then Description*
Check for Duplicates in: *Current recordings*
Record New and Expire Old: *Enabled*
No of Recordings to Keep: *5*
Auto-Expire Recordings: *Disabled

*Works for me, there is always the last five recordings of the show 
Regardless of whether they have been watched or not, the title will get 
rerecorded if it is no longer available in Recordings.
If I enable Auto-Expire Recordings, after it has been watched, it might 
get expired due to lack of space, and rerecorded the same day at a later
