Unfortunately I don't think this is possible with Optik TV. You will likely need to record them individually.
Possibly put it forward as a new idea/feature request:
Ideas - TELUS Neighbourhood
I agree. I had a Shaw Satelite box that could do that over 10 years ago. This is a fail by Telus IMO. I entered an "Idea" but I doubt anyone who can do anything about it will see.
I have had ideas implemented. It did take some time but Telus does look at the suggestions.
You can view the Ideas that were implemented here:https://forum.telus.com/t5/Ideas/idb-p/Ideas_TEST/status-key/Completed
As of today there are 56 ideas that are marked Completed.
