Definitely "Not Listed"...

That's exactly what we're after; to let you know that it changed
so you can try to fix it. Two bottles of Champagne ;-).

I don't think an override would work but making a new rule for
the short title is the right thing to do.

It's an even meaner thing to do to T... the leading commercial DVR
users. This is a new feature in myth to let MythTV users know that
they are being jerked around (but I don't really think the stations
are being malicious when they make these changes =).
One question might be why it doesn't record it anyway. That might
be good if it is the same show with a slightly different title but
almost every time a different title appears it is a completely
different show. The show you set the single rule for may still be
planned but in a different time slot. In any case, the "Not Listed"
lets you know that something isn't the same anymore and the show
you asked for is not going to record.
