DVR won't save 2 parts of an episode

PBS airs each episode  of Midsomer Murders in two 45-minute parts, back-to-back.  When I try to record a complete episode, only Part 2 is saved.  I think the DVR is reading a code that says the two parts are the same episode, and so it deletes Part 1.  Is there a work-around for this?

you will have to manually record those 'non-normal' foreign episodes. the USA standards are 'season' and "episode". The 5/7 are set as 's17 part1' instead of s17 e14 (for example). set a series recording, new and repeat, then do a manual recording of any shows not marked to record. working?

Thanks, Rustyben.  I should have mentioned that both parts are marked for recording (with red dots), but only Part 2 shows up as saved.  Last night, I programmed the DVR to record on both the HD channel and the SD channel, and it seems to have saved both parts.  Does this make sense?
