Exactly. The "record all episodes including duplicates" is the best work-around, but it's still a workaround. And one that I'm hesitant to use because whenever I take that option I end up with all kinds of crap getting recorded unless I remove ESPN Classic from channels I receive. I don't see any workarounds to the other baseball-related problems I reported. For example, when a game is shown on ESPN for the national audience and also on Channel 36 (I'm an Oakland A's fan) or FSBA for the local audience, the ESPN program is blacked-out locally. But invariably TiVo tries to record the game on the channel where it's blacked-out instead of the one where it's actually shown. These tend to be big games against the Angels or the Yankees, so it's really annoying. The only way to prevent this is to block ESPN from channels I receive, and that's pretty harsh.
