Series marked as First Run or "keep 1 recording" doesn't record

I've found that if I specify "First Run" or keep 1 recording, the program doesn't show up on the Upcoming Recordings list. Only if I use the default, First Run + ReRuns and/or keep "All" recordings will the program show up on the "Upcoming Recordings" list. What am I missing?

Are there any First Runs of the show in question airing within the next 3 days? Do you already have 1 or more recorded?

Check this FAQ:

Why isn't my Favorite set to record? It falls within the next 3 days, so it should be in my recording schedule.

Series marked as First Run or "keep 1 recording" doesn't record

Thanks for your help. Looking through the FAQ I decided that what I consider "first run" (the first airing of a series on a given day) is not what SageTv considers first run. Apparently all the airings are "reruns". Also, I'm using the SageMC interface and their series spec page doesn't show the auto delete option. The default seems to be "no". Is there a way to set that globally? Thanks again for your help. I finally got my recalcitrant series to show on the recording schedule although it records every airing.
