I don't know if there's a state type for preserved episodes for themers
to use--and if so, don't know if any themes use it. I'd recommend you
preserve an episode (Watched Recordings, MENU|Storage Options|Preserve
this episode), then see if anything shows up. Also, you may be able to
see it in the F1/1 "help" popup in Watch Recordings.

That sounds like you have 2 different rules for the same show? Check
your recording rules carefully (in MythWeb's Recording Rules page or
mythfrontend's Manage Recordings|Recording Rules).
