When the 2nd instance was recorded, it would have a row inserted into
oldrecorded as well which would have rerecord set to 0 which would cause
the show to start showing up as a dup so it wouldn't get recorded a 3rd
time.  That could get confusing though in the code so it's probably not a
good idea.

Yeah, couldn't work in 100% of cases cleanly.
