I think this was solved earlier this week when Brad Templeton launched
hos new TVWish program on this mailing list. This lets you tell MythTV
to records specific episodes of programs whenever it sees them in the
program guide. You can list one or many episodes for as many programs
as you like. It's a great piece of software. You can find all the info
at http://www.templetons.com/brad/myth/tvwish.html
