DVR Recording

What happened to the option to "record this channel only"?  I set it to record only new shows but when there is a marithon on a different channel than the show's home channel, it will record all of them.  For example, I only want new NCIS shows on CBS/HD but when Oxygen runs a marithon, it will record all of them.  Same thing with the Dr. Oz show, ZLVND is running a marithon so the DVR is recording all of them instread of just the home channel.  Driving me nuts to have to go through all the scheduled recordings and have to delete tons of them!

when you do a search and record from that search you are not on a guide channel to select a channel. find the next appearance of the recording in the guide and set the recording from there.
