[mythtv-users] Inconsistent program naming in EIT guide on FreeView (UK DVB)

I'm having trouble with Myth recording a lot of duplicate programs. I'm
in the UK, recording FreeView DVB broadcasts and using the
over-the-air/EIT program guide only. For example I've ended up with four
copies of a recent Ugly Betty episode (some people would argue that even
one copy of this show was probably surplus to requirements but I have to
'test' MythTV on something...)
I've set up a rule to record this show at any time on any channel since
the same series is transmitted on Channel 4, E4 and E4+1 at different
times throughout the week.
Firstly, should I expect this to record all showings or just all unique
showings? Is there an option to record all unique showings?
Secondly, I've noticed sometimes that the text associated with a
particular episode of a show in the EIT guide is not consistent across
different showings of that episode across channels or, sometimes, even
between repeats of the same episode on the same channel. Will I get
better matching of duplicates from the Radio Times xmltv grabber than
the FreeView EIT guide?
