If you're using Freeview's EPG, then every programme has a series ID
and programme ID
The omnibus episodes have a series ID of fp.bbc.co.uk/kci192.
The normal episodes have a series ID of fp.bbc.co.uk/kci195.
The series IDs are displayed in MythWeb.

So you can set up a custom recording rule:

Shame this isn't very user friendly.
