I want to make sure Directv is not able to use my wi-fi unless I want to download something. How do I prevent it?

I chatted with a customer service person on Directv online website after a VERY frustrating call with them on the phone. My issue was: When I tried to record a specific show, it was also recording ALL previous showings from ALL seasons (On Demand channel)that I'd already seen. I found no way of deleting this process on the On Demand channels!! :(   The customer service lady on 'chat' answered the problem so easily!!!  Here's what I was instructed to do:
On Remote, press Menu. Go down to Recordings and then R arrow on remote to Manage Recordings and press Select on remote. Go down to Record Defaults and press Select on remote. Press R arrow again to Episode Type. It likely says "All Recordings". Press Select on remote and change to "First Run". That should take care of the problems. YAY!!!

But won't that also disable recording any broadcast reruns?
