Hi Mike,

Please let me repeat this to be sure I got it right:
The EPG is the same for all episodes and they are broadcasted at no 
fixed time and randomly repeated. Correct?

When there's no information how to distinguish the episodes and their 
repeats I doubt that there's a way to handle this.
Do you have any ideas (and even better also a suggestion how to 
represent this in the search timer edit menu?)

This 'one shot timer' could be a way to handle it, but is this 
sufficient? Do the above episodes have a guaranteed interval, after 
which a new episode is broadcasted?

Best regards,
