Eeek left off the url, sorry.

I admit to being a bear-of-little-brain but I do not understand. The EPG says exactly what will show.

eg today
2019-02-17 22:32:48.663689 I  ABC News                              24 ABC NEW 23 19:00-19:15   2  6  A  6 0

but the listing could be any combination of

21 ABC

And the EPG correctly shows the detail. Every match (which they all do) matches.

> The " this episode | this series | this time | this day and time | this
> channel ... " tick boxes make the scheduling incredibly flexible.

Cute! On Monday at about 9.00 pm ABC shows Q&A. It may show on any combination of their muxes and often repeats on any combination of their muxes the same day. Again the EPG is exactly correct.
Neither 'this time' or 'this channel' help.
The depreciated ‘Find one showing each week’ would solve this. I will have to dive into the SQL as suggested.

What sort of information? Upcomming Recordings looks normal as does —printsched.

Interstingly I do have 3 recordings of ’Never Say Never Again’  The first is 46 minutes long but. the second and third started after 30 minutes. 

oldrecorded hows the first and second (or third) entries only.
Boy am I confused.
