Remember, also, that you can "train" MythTV to ignore the repeats that
you don't want. Basically, just set the episodes to "Never Record" if
you've seen them or don't care to see them. It's very easy to do
through MythWeb, and I've found that--especially for those shows that
show multiple showings per day (i.e. Simpsons)--it really only takes a
few weeks to train the system (and, with almost 2 weeks of guide data,
you can take care a huge chunk at a time). So, using anytime on all
channels is possible (all my recording schedules are set that way).
The big benefit of this approach is that you get a very complete
database of what TV you've seen, and you don't miss any episodes (but
you might get a few you've seen).
