I built my first mythbox this fall, therefore practically every episode
of everyshow has never been recorded.
I tried that with the Simpson's today and myth planned to record a 3
year old episode at 5pm instead of the episode at 8pm with today as the
origional air date. Not mention 3 episodes a day from here on. I really
only want to record one episode a week, but chosing " Find and record
one showing of this title each week." may end up recording an old show
on tuesday or today for that matter. Not sunday's new episode.
Perhaps what I am looking for is "Find and record an origional airing"

Okay, but I would like to include other showings at other times or from
other stations but only today when the new episodes come out.
