The option to prevent duplicate recordings has some problems with incomplete or incorrect EPG data, especially the episode number option. I recently had problems recording episodes where the EPG data contained season info but no episode info, so every episode of season 2 had episode number "1..". The scheduler skipped all episodes after the first recording. I think the scheduler should always record if episode number is incomplete, also it may be usefull to give a third option wich combines episode title and episode number options to cover more situations where you only have title or episode name stored in the epg data.
Logic could be:
Use episode number to check whether an episode already exists IF at least EpisodeNum is given.
If EpisodeNum does not exists use episode name to check for duplicate recordings but if episode name is also empty always record.
