With my limited experience using manual scheduling (I mainly used it
in the beginning before my listings were sorted) you specify a title
for the recording when setting it up. If you want the full listings
details and titles to be recorded, to you need the scheduler to
'match' content in the listings. Is it possible to match some text in
the title/subtitle/description for the movies that is common amongst
them all? If you can, you could set up a custom record to match this
text, and you would then get the full details of the movie recorded
with each one.
