Recording First Run showings only

When I select a Series I want to get only First Run showings.  Instead I get not only the First Run on the local network channel but also the reruns on a channel like USA.  How can I set up only First Run showings?

On the show click view all episodes. Then click record series----on the popup-- new shows.

If you already set it to record, delete all recording options. Then go back and select only New Shows and then click the OK after that. It's a little difficult at first but it does work.

I have done that 3 times. Each time all the reruns still show up on upcoming recordings. I have tried all suggestions I have found from the forms. I wish it would record just the channel set original new recording to and that's it. But instead it does any channel the shows on, which are all reruns

I have the same problem. I have selected the "New Episodes Only" option, but still get extraneous episodes from "secondary" channels.

Nothing you can do about it until they get a channel choice when you set up a recording. Just delete the shows you don't want to watch. Not a big deal until they ad more recording options (if they ever do)
