To expand on that answer:

If you select "don't record" then an override is created that prevents 
only that particular showing from being recorded.  If the episode is 
shown on a different channel or at another time then it will still be 
recorded.  The only good reason I can think of for using "don't record" 
is to make room in the schedule for system maintenance.  If you change 
your mind then you have to find that specific episode in the guide and 
change it to "schedule normally".  This can be done via MythWeb or the 
MythTV frontend GUI, but only if that specific episode is still 
available in the current listings.

If you select "never record" then instead of creating an override Myth 
creates a false "previously recorded" record.  To cancel a "never 
record" you can either use MythWeb to "Forget Old" in the current 
(duplicates) listings, or you can use the MythTV GUI to navigate to 
"Manage Recordings" / "Previously Recorded", find the episode and 
delete it.
