Sometimes I have found the words "later" and "earlier" slightly misleading. It might mean that the 
program is being recorded /at the same time/ but on, for example, an HD channel instead of SD, or 
vice versa, or a different channel that is showing the same program.

As noted, a "mythtv --printsched" should make all clear.
