looks like their all different! (i get my signal from satellite, so
being ITV, then it's regional, hence lots of channels)
the 3 recordings in question all have different IDs - #34 (+1), #111
(SD), #119 (HD).
i guess ITV/EIT listings screwed things up, rather than a mythtv issue.

annoying, but thanks for the assistance. I'll edit my recording rules
to 'one a week, on this channel/timeslot'.
i guess it's better than it not recording atall - SWMBO wouldn't be
happy with me if that were true :)
