It will remember the episodes you've recorded forever so if the
same episode is shown again, it will be marked as "P". You can
allow episodes to record again by selecting "allow re-record"
when you delete, selecting "Forget previous" for an upcoming
showing from any scheduling page or by going to the Previously
Recorded page and removing one or all episodes for the title.

There's lots of stuff you can do to control your schedule. See:
