I have an AutoRec for the German news ("Tagesschau") everyday at 20:00 h. Occasionally, Tvh will record the Tagesschau at noon (12:00) instead of the evening broadcast.

This is the AutoRec entry:

And here you can see (in yellow) the upcoming recording that is not right:

This only seems to happen after Tvh has been up for a while (or some time after the AutoRec has been created). After I took this screenshot, I opened and saved the AutoRec entry (without changing anything) and now the upcoming recordings are correct:

The issue seems to be related to duplicate handling - in the first screenshot, the 30/06/17, 20:00 h broadcast is marked as a rerun of the 12:00 h broadcast (which is not correct, obviously).

I have seen this misbehavior as well.

I confirm this bug. My autorec entry specifies start and stop time during evenings (17:00-20:00), yet it sometimes also records the morning repeat of the show (around 8:00).

Well, actually in the first screenshot by Jan W the columns "Start after" and "Start before" both contain "20:00".
I don't think that would be a good time interval, it may create some unexpected or invalid behaviour.
