I had my Showstopper set up to record CSI and ER Thursday night. Only CSI recorded. Then I noticed that ER was supposed to start at 9:59. 1 minute before CSI ended. Will that keep it from recording? If so, how can I get them both to record next week.


Thanks in advance for any help.

Been discussed here several times since the new sched came out.... you either need two machines or need to do a manual record that will skip the one minute of one of the shows.


Because it was a conflict (overlap), it didn't do ER. The real answer is 'negative padding', which doesn't exist at this time.

Or boycott ER since NBC is not playing by the rules...

Rules?! They don't need no stinkin' rules...


I'll ask again, since no one has answered. Who says they are 'supposed' to do :00 and :30 time slots? It's a habit, not a requirement, and if I had a bunch of potatoes for an audience, I might try to see if they are so lazy that a one minute run over/early start would keep them onboard and increase ratings. :)


Bottom line: you want the nets to make it easy for you to watch another net's show? :D

Welcome to the wonderful world of Replay's non-existent conflict resolution. If it ain't there when you set it up it ain't a conflict.

The rules are defined by what I use to record shows. This is all I care about and therefore how I define TV...

People at Yahoo are doing a 'send me this when IVS is back' but that depends on who has what, of course. It may take a while to catch up next week...

ER has been starting at 9:59 for as long as I can remember. The only thing that's chanced recently is that the guide acknowledges this, so you don't miss the first minute of the show if you don't pad.


But you *do* miss the whole show if you try to record something else from 9-10.
