Important.png Note: The correct title of this article is oldrecorded table. It appears incorrectly here due to technical restrictions.

The oldrecorded table lists all of the recordings that have been made. It is used by the scheduler to determine whether new shows are duplicates of previously recorded shows. mythfrontend provides a mechanism to delete shows from this table in order to make the scheduler forget that they were ever recorded.
