New to Optik and Telus but seems there is something wrong with the system here. Setting my recordings I select First Runs Only,, but I end up with everything. Had similar problem with Shaw, but it was hit and miss. Telus Optik so far is 100% miss. Is this normal? Is there not a flag in the guide for "New" and "Repeat" episodes that the PVR is expecting but it's not present?
I believe the information regarding a show being "new" or a "repeat" is determined by information in the guide. Telus and Shaw lget guide information from a 3rd party and have no control over that information.
You can limit the issue by narrowing down the settings to a specific time of day and/or only once a day.
