Also true. The important side effect of this for MythTV users is that
RT-reviewed programmes will have a different description the first
time they are shown, which causes problems for the scheduler deciding
if a future repeat broadcast of the show is in fact different. Using
the 'Subtitle then Description' dupe detection is one way to work
around this, although a subtitle is required to be present to avoid
matching on the description.
