Overwriting recordings = a terrible default

Two issues here:

1.  When a service like Amazon Prime has multiple videos with the same name, it is impossible to queue more than one at a time.  To record more than one, the videos must be queued and recorded separately.

2.  Recording a video will overwrite (delete) a prior recording of the same name, with no prompting.  This occurs when restarting a failed recording, and when recording something that just happens to have the same name as a prior recording. 

Other software I use understands that automatic deletion of a file is a bad thing, and appends a number to the file name to make it unique.  Playon should implement something similar, both to avoid deletion of recordings that may actually have value to the user; and to allow queuing of multiple videos of the same name.
