How about instead of showing oldrecorded info on the listings, showing 
it on the program detail page.  That would alleviate concerns of 
decreased performance (due to large data sets) while still reminding the 
forgetful among us (i.e. me) that we(I)'ve already seen a show (movies, 
etc.).  AIUI, if something is in oldrecorded (recstatus = -3, at least) 
and a user sets a new find once rule (or something) with duplicate 
matching other than none, the show won't record.  Notifying the user 
before creating the rule would help prevent confusion.

If doing this, it would also be nice to have a link to add a show to 
oldrecorded (i.e. when I see a movie in the theater, I would be able to 
add it to my oldrecorded so I don't accidentally record it again).  And, 
if you're concerned about the "accuracy" of the years-old oldrecorded 
data, you could add a link to remove a show that exists in oldrecorded 
from oldrecorded (to allow for re-recording).

I could work on a patch, but won't have a chance for at least a week.
