The 'record' table contains all recording schedule definitions.  The 
'recorded' table contains all currently stored episodes.  The 
'oldrecorded' table is a subset of the data in 'recorded', and contains 
an entry for every recording you have ever made with mythtv.  Please do 
not continue tinkering around in the database if you do not understand 
what the tables are used for.

Still shows up on mine.  You may have just checked an episode which did 
not have a programid.  It is an optional field.
