Recording first run only in V2 or V3? (1 Viewer)

I have what may be a simple question but can't seem to locate the answer in any documentation or FAQ.

Is there a way to setup MP to record only first run episodes of a series with TV engine V2? Does this feature exist in V3? I'm using XMLTV for my EPG feed if that makes any difference.

So far I've been very impressed with MP and just added a tuner card this past week.

Thank you! :)

There isn't, and the reason for this according to the devs is that there aren't enough XMLTV feeds out there that correctly provide first-run details. There's a thread in this forum somewhere on it.
