Yes, "new" to the Tivo isn't just those shows that say "new" in the guide. It does some logic like: if it originally aired during the last 28 days, and this box hasn't recorded it yet (checks a history log), then record it.
I had the same experience originally, but I've been using it over a month now and so that period has past for me.
Also if you look at the to-do list you might see scheduled recordings of repeats and other things that don't make sense say a week out. Eventually, as the days get closer Tivo figures out the correct things to record.
