If you want to record something that's already been recorded (and hasn't 
been "forgotten"/"allow re-record"'ed), you /must/ disable duplicate 
matching.  To do this easily, simply make a recording rule template for 
"this showing" with duplicate detection disabled and apply it when 
creating such rules.
