Describe the duplicate recordings.

The duplicate recordings are mostly, but not all, from autorec. They are all "good" recordings, meaning I can play them. There is no single channel that is affected, it can happen on any channel.
I'm going to start a tracelog right now, and report back when the issue occurs again.

Having read your comment, I guess that you have Ziggo in the Netherlands as privider too. Correct?
So this issue might be just another anomaly that only is related to Ziggo in the Netherlands.

I have the same issue. It seems to me that this happens when tvh is stopped and restarted. For example when you upgrade to a new version. It seems like tvh fails to recognize that a program scheduled for recording is the same as the programs in the new epg it loads during startup.

My workaround has been to disable the autorec (to clear all scheduled recordings), then reenable it, to set them again.

Nothing jet.
That seems to be the way this issue occurs. Like nothing at all for several weeks/months, or hit the jackpot a couple of times in a single week.

Hi all,
still nothing, I'm stopping the tracelog untill it happens again.
I updated my tvheadend to the last master HEAD, it contains several updates to EPG. So maybe the issue is fixed, we'll see.
