What does a green dot mean?

What does a green dot mean in the guide?
The shows are over but if I look in the "Past" hour or so there are some shows that have a green dot.

They need to put up a manual for this guide.

Just for fun, I called Cablevision and asked them what the green dot means in already aired shows...

"I don't know" was the answer (and I guess we never will). She didn't forward the question to anyone and check either. Oh well :/

Ninth page on that PDF that RemyM linked you says that the green icon (or maybe dot) means it finished recording a program that previously aired.

And you can play recording from there

Well if that's true I have a problem because when I go into the DVR nothing has been recorded.

Another piece of the puzzle...

The only way to see if a show was new that has already aired is to use the guide at optimum.net.

The thing is, there were no new shows that had to be recorded.

So is this a glitch with the new guide?

I wouldn't know. I haven't used a shitty CV STB in a little over three years. I've been a happy CableCARD customer with WMCE.
