[mythtv-users] Some shows being skipped for recording issue

I have received a reply from myth dev regarding this.  It was suggested
that you run mysql and then at the prompt type "delete from
oldrecorded;" (without the quotes but with the semicolon) and then
exit.  To my understanding this will clear your oldrecorded so that
mythtv will forget that it has recorded the show before.  As far as the
code that does this, maybe if you can find the code that inserts this
info into oldrecorded.  Try this at your own risk.  Backup your database
first.  I have not really tested it yet because I am struggling with
another DB error that apparently results from two encoders recording the
same show at the same time to the same file on a 2 tuner system.
