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).
