You're missing the fact that pressing "R" tells Myth to record the
current program. The "options" you get are to record the current
program only, to find multiple matches and so forth.

It's presumed that you press "R" to record this program, and you can
then use the program guide or program finder to tell Myth the other
programs after the current one to record.
