Series Link recording filter no longer working
When scheduling a Series Link recording it no longer seems to filter out repeated recordings of the same episode.
Example: When scheduled "Fred Dinenage Murder Casebook" on Crime it scheduled repeated instances of the same episode (2 or 3 a day)

As the series link field is so unreliable (or has no definite pattern for all programmes), is it possible to switch back to title matching and filter out re-occurances based on the contents of the description? I find that the descriptions are almost always exactly the same for repeated programmes.

You can always setup an autorec manually to use title matching but currently desc cannot be used to spot dups (it did used to do this - but it breaks things horribly).
However I was thinking about adding that back in as an option sometime in the future. You could always submit a FR for it
