The Direct TV guide shows original air date which helps your series links distinguish between new and rerun.  The problem you will run into is with channels that pick up programming from Canada and Britain.  Those will show the original air date from their native countries, not the original US air date.


"But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, is their monument today, and for aye." "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave."

It's time you did your own research. 

 

 

 

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Hmmmm. Read that somewhere!

It's in the info on a show.

Just set the unit to record first run and after the first time it records it will only record the first airings and no repeated. You will be fine.

You must tell us what show and what channel it is doing this.  Be specific.

Obviously, if you record 192 hours, then yes!!!!
