Windows 7: Consistently Getting Duplicate Recordings and Re-recording Episodes

Consistently Getting Duplicate Recordings and Re-recording Episodes

This is happening on various cable channels.

I am getting duplicate recordings of the same Show/Episode.

Example: Tonight I see I have 4 recordings of the same Longmire - Dog Soldier episode.

My Show recording settings are:
Show type: New
Channels: HD preferred
Airtime: Anytime
Keep: Until Space needed
Keep up to: As many as possible
Stop: 5 minutes after, when possible

History shows:

Longmire: Dog Soldier - "[ Recorded

Longmire: Dog Soldier - "[ Recorded


A second unrelated question would be: Is there a way to get the media system to allow you to record an episode that it thinks it successfully recorded in the past.

Example: I record an episode and start watching it and find the quality is terrible. Therefore I would like to delete the episode and have the media system rerecord it the next time it is broadcast (perhaps in 6 months in the summer as currently this particular episode is not being repeated in the next few weeks).
