Joining the thread a bit late here, but I just wanted to ask what kind
of sports you're trying to record? I've noticed that in motorsports
(NASCAR, IndyCar, etc.), that often times they'll originally air live
on one network. Then, a few days later, they may re-air on another
network such as SPEED. Many times, SPEED will actually list the
re-airing as a first time showing and not a repeat. So, I'll
sometimes get the same event recorded twice. I'm wondering if this
might not be a similar circumstance to what you're experiencing?
However, it sounds like it's picking a later showing over the earlier
showing, so maybe unreleated. What network does the original air on?
What network does the later showing air on? Does it show original air
date for both the showings? Does the later showing show the original
"live" air date?
