[mythtv-users] Analyzing why Myth didn't record Office season finale

Ok, so I'm a big fan of The Office and I have a "Find Weekly" recording
setup to record it on NBCHD (with my HDHomeRun) every week. Last Thursday
at around 10:00pm I flipped on the TV and went to find what I thought would
be the season finale waiting for me to view. Instead, I discovered that
Myth never recorded it. I immediately went into the program guide, backed
up a few hours to 7:30pm, and highlighted the Office listing. It had a big
"F" on it, which said "Find weekly - previously recorded." When I drilled
into the listing further, it stated: "This showing was not recorded because
this episode was previously recorded according to the duplicate policy
chosen for this title."
I found this a big odd considering that it was the season finale and has
never been aired before. The duplicate check method I have setup for all my
recordings (include this one) is "subtitle and description". There were 2
other recordings in an adjacent timeslot that evening - CSI and Grey's
Anatomy - which both DID record successfully. They are both from 8:00 -
8:30pm, and each occupies a spot on the HDHomeRun. Not that that should
matter since I also have a PVR-150 that The Office could have fallen back on
if for some reason Myth felt that CSI and Grey's Anatomy would have
conflicted. Furthermore, I would think that it would have shown a big "C"
for conflict as a reason for not recording were that the problem.
I've been trying to do a little postmortem on why the recording failed
mainly because if it's something I did wrong I want to make sure I correct
it. For some reason, Myth really thinks that it was previously recorded. I
went into the Previously Recorded episodes and scrolled down to The Office.
As it turns out, there IS an entry for the season finale with the correct
subtitle and description, and next to it the letter "P" for previously
recorded. But again, it never recorded and has never previously been
recorded. So I'm really stumped on this one. Anyone have any ideas or
things I could look at to analyze this? Thanks,
