That was the behavior in .16, if a show wasn't marked as a repeat but 
was in the previous or current recordings it would get marked as a 
repeat.  With current CVS you should get the true reason it's not going 
to record.  I've just taken another look at things and it looks like I 
missed a section of SQL for the dups in stuff.  I'll correct that soon.

That is correct.  New recordings only is currently implemented as a "dup 
in" not a "dup loc".  When set something to be recorded as new episodes 
only it looks for duplicates using subtitle and description.

the true reject reason and to make sure that the 14 window is available, 
previously there were cases where shows within the window wouldn't get
