Thanks for the responses. So if I understand everyone correctly, if I want
to have myth check for the re-run flag, I need to create a custom record
rule that will check if program.previouslyshown=1, correct? Just curious,
but why does myth check against title description instead of the rerun flag?
Also, there's an entry in myth web called "Record New and Expire Old". Does
that have any relation to this topic?
