Some guide data--like that provided by Schedules Direct (which it seems
you may have based on your e-mail)--includes an original airdate. If
yours does, you can set mythfrontend to sort by original airdate, then
(allow Myth to record all episodes--including season 2) and just
remember the name of the first episode from season 2 and watch any show
that appears before it in the list. Once you've recorded/watched the
last episode of season 1, enjoy season 2.
In mythfrontend settings:
- Record date
- Original Air date
- Program ID
Selects how to sort a shows episodes
Under TV Settings|Playback Settings on page 4 (or so), "View Recordings".
