Why does DVR record same programs over and over and records ALL episodes of a show?

All of a sudden in the last month over and over I get older recordings of shows that I had already recorded and watch.  And yes, I checked it is set for New only not ALL or New & Old.  Like Oak Island does it a lot.

go to the scheduled recordings screen on an x1 device. press down then up and then right to the priority list. select it. move down through the list until you locate the name of the series. press OK and look at the series setting. does it show the 'call letters' (like WABCHD) for channel or does it say HD preferred?

Not sure if this is what you meant.  Let me know if not & I will check again.  Anyway Bermuda Triangle recorded the same show over again I just watched so here is the DVR tag;

The photo I posted show the schedule recordings.  I also went to Priority & scrolled down, but when I click on a  program it shows no info only cancel.  My photo shows BOTH the channel DISCHD and HD.  There is only an HD channel for discovery so if your thinking it's recording both hd & sd it's not.

did you check your TV's zoom setting while it is cropped?
