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?
