I *think* if you made a rather straightforward but perhaps lengthly 
custom recording rule of something like:

If title = 'news2' OR title = 'news2' OR title = 'news3'

and then set a recording limit on that rule that it would only keep X 
recordings for all matches.  I do this with Friends/Seinfeld to keep 6 
of them around regardless of whether it is one or the other.
