Ha!

So I'd noted the comments from one or two posters about how they'd buy a DVR+ if it had four tuners. Or whatever. And I'm thinkin' "What the heck would somebody need more than two tuners...

It "remembers" it had recorded it once, already, therefor it's not "new to it/you."

I had assumed, by an earlier comment you had made, that you knew there was a "new" flag in the metadata. Now it kind of sounds like you're guessing as to how "new" is determined?
