There was quite a bit of talk about this a week or two ago... I raised the
issue that deleting entries from the oldrecorded table was probably not the
best way to go about it, as the information about what's been recorded in
the past is then unrecoverable.  I have a patch that will achieve the same
effect (unsuppressing a single program instance) without deleting anything
from the database.  Instead, it adds a column to the 'program' table
indicating that a particular showing is to be recorded regardless of its
'duplicate' status.  I could easily hook this mechanism to your new
"Unsuppress recording" button; I just need to sync up with current CVS.
I'll post a patch when I have things synced up; let me know what you think.
