When I select a show to record, I typically select "Record at any time 
on any channel" if you leave it at that, all occurances will be recorded 
once,  If you want to limit your recordings to "First Run", as you put 
it, under "Scheduling Options", the 5th row down  change it to say 
"Record new episodes only". I believe this will only record within 14 
days of the original air date.
