 From the 0.16 "What's New" ( http://www.mythtv.info/moin.cgi/WhatsNew ):

New Episodes Only Recording
Myth .16 will support recording of new episodes only, with a window 
(default of 14 days) for a show to be reshown (and thus allowing the 
scheduler to juggle shows around). This is of course highly data source 
dependant. If your grabber doesn't supply enough info, you can't make 
use of this.
Along with this: The repeat status is now available to the UI. Theme 
authors can add REPEAT and LONGRPEAT to the descriptions of programs so 
you may see: "(Repeat 2/12/2002) Some description text".
