You need to go to Watch Recordings, select the bad recording, and 
MENU|Scheduling Options|Allow this program to re-record.  If you do that 
/in Watch Recordings/ (as opposed to selecting, "Allow this episode to 
re-record," in "Previously Recorded"), MythTV will ignore not only the 
recording history for that episode, but also the currently-recorded 
episode.  So, you can keep the bad recording just in case the network 
decides not to re-run the episode.
