Series recording settings not matching what's being recorded

I have the recording settings for two shows, South Park and Tosh.0 set to record "first run only." I looked at my scheduled recordings and for the next few days, multiple reruns of each show are going to be recorded. There are no new episodes airing right now, so I'm confused as to what's going on. Has anyone experienced this before? Any resolution? Thanks!

If there's no original air date listed, the DVR is assuming these are 1st run.  When we lost OADs 4-5 years ago, that was the only way the DVR could work.

 

I know it seems silly, but that's the way it works.  Very irritationg to me when I see 10 Cake Boss's set to record, or repeat prime time shows, all I have to manually delete when going thru Scheduled Recordings. Smiley Wink

That makes sense, mibrnsurg. I checked and those random episodes that recorded had no "original air date" in the information. Very silly, but I guess it's better for the DVR to record everything it's unsure of rather than missing a first run that wasn't indicated.

 

Thanks for the clarification!
