MythTV always uses title, unless you specifically use seriesid (which
you can do through filters). It's better to record too much than not
enough--after all, why should MythTV assume you don't want the movie
based on the TV series that you're recording? Or why should it assume
that just because you want to record the new Dallas series, you don't
want to record the old one?
