Uverse dvr recoding all episodes of a series when set to "first run only"

What is the deal with this? I basically have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set to record any day, any time first run only, so it grabs every new episode. This setup worked fine until this week where it's recording every episode that's on regardless. Being that it's a cartoon, there's alot of episodes scheduled and it's causing conflicts. I just deleted the series and readded it and still having the same problem! Anyone got any insight on what I can do to fix that?

I know this does not help, but I set up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be recorded on all the Nick channels, with your same parameters, and the most any channel is scheduled to record is 16.  I did notice that most of the showings do not an original air date so I guess DVR defaults to new show and records it.

This is a known fault of the DVR, it assumes if no OAD, it's 'new'.  I get all kinds of garbage scheduled w/o OADs and have to delete them manually.  This was the default system when ATT took away the OADs a few years ago. Smiley Wink
