in the record settings there should be an option to record only new episodes of a show because it may not be new every week

I endorse.

Not only that but sometimes a show will run 3 times in a day and be the same episode.

One hurdle I see is that some shows have no tvguide details and so I don't see how it would be able to tell if a show is new or not.

I endorse such a feature.

Or tag all showings of a show I haven't seen

A slightly different approach would be to allow you to grab all new showings of a show that you haven't seen, regardless of whether it is a premiere broadcast or a rerun. One way would be to track which shows have been recorded, even if they have since been deleted. That would let you get all the episodes of, say, News Radio without repeats, even though there are no new episodes of News Radio being broadcast.

So that would let you get all the episodes of a show that are new to you, rather than all episodes a show that are new to broadcast.

Tivo does the 'new show only' thing, and does it well. I see in the guide data (Repeat) typically for non new shows. I don't know if Tivo is putting that there, or it's part of the guide data.

Sound good. But one problem.
Some Broadcasters (and in some cases TV magazines, too) publish wrong data.
I had often seen that a tv series is shown with wrong seasson/episode data.

    Hope this feature has been added, media center does it just fine, if show is a repeat no record, if show is NEW Record. :eek:

    Hmm just noticed this was requested in 2005 is there any chance this will be added into MP? I know MP 1.2 beta is being worked on and I am pretty sure it wont have it, but maybe (please please) in a future release?

    Guys. This feature is already in MP's TvServer for a long time. I am on mobile Device so cannot check exactly but please open setuptv and check recordings settings. There you can activate this and have the option if you look for Episode number or title. But important is that your Epg actually have this data at all. Else it cannot work.

    I had checked the episode-num line, and they do not match for a given show. But after checking several entries I found that the number showing on the Guide is a corrected/adjusted number. So if the xml file shows 1.9 as episode-num, the Guide displays 10.2. So MP2 is converting the xml number by adding 1 to each digit set. I will...
