Pretty sure that # of recordings to keep is determined based on the 
title of the recordings, so if your power rule matches shows with 
different titles, it's unlikely to do what you want.

You'll need to give specific descriptions of rules (including the SQL 
you're using), titles matched under the rules, and how many shows of 
each title you're getting for us to be able to better understand the 
problem and possibly allow giving a better description of what's happening.
