Dealing with cable news channels...

So I'm a bit of a political junkie. I like to watch Hardball and Countdown on MSNBC. The problem is, MSNBC and CNN both sets the episode ID for these types of shows in a way that makes SageTV consider each airing a different show. What this means is that if I add say, Hardball, as a favorite and dont narrow it down to a specific time (2pm) it will sometimes record all three shows duplicate shows from the same day. However, I dont like forcing it to record at a specific time as it might conflict with another show and unless I manually adjust that days show, it won't get recorded.

I can kind of understand why the cable news guys do this. After all, maybe some major news broke between the two airings and they decide to go live on the second or third airing. Such an event would indeed make each airing a different show. But still, for the most part it is annoying.

Does anybody have any advice on how to deal with cable news shows such as Countdown or AC360 that assign each airing of the same show with a different episode ID?
