Question About "All" vs. "New" in Series Recordings for DCX3510-M

I'm confused about the definitions of "All" vs "New" for series recording in the DCX3510-M guide.

 

I have created several series recordings with the Episodes to Record option set to All.  I assumed this meant that every episode would be recorded, regardless of the time slot and whether it was a new or repeat episode, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

 

For example, I created a series recording for Season 2 of Game of Thrones on Showcase Ch 28 with All episodes set to record.  The first airing of S2E1 ("The North Remembers") on Fri Aug 30 @ 9:00 PM CT recorded successfully, but the repeat airing of the same episode on Sat Aug 31 @ 12:45 CT was never scheduled to record (List | Schedule).  Series recordings for older shows like M*A*S*H work the same way - when the same episode airs twice in the same 24-hour period, the first airing in the morning will be scheduled to record but the second airing in the afternoon will not.

 

Is this a bug, or has Shaw deliberately programmed the guide to only record the first air date of a given episode, regardless of whether the user sets the Episodes to Record option All or New?
