Many times, I and others have tried to schedule a program for recording expecting the entry in the guide to turn red. But it doesn't and the program is not scheduled. No reason why. After long experience, I learned that one must execute NextPVR.exe with the -removehistory parameter to remove the item from the deleted history. The guide entry will now turn red and the program will be scheduled.

I'd like to suggest that when a user uses the guide to schedule a program, honor the request AFTER automatically deleting it from the delete history. Simply delete the entry whether or not it exists. Is there some other rationale for not doing this?
