    On my old Scientific Atlanta boxes, if I scheduled a recording from 10:00 to 11:00 and another recording from 10:30 to 12, if the 10-11 show had a higher priority, it would record in its entirety and then the 10:30-12 show would start recording, in progress, at 11:00. On my TiVo, the second show doesn't record at all (I have a series 3, but the second tuner is occupied during this time). I see that there is a setting for clipping, but it only allows clipping when the overlap is 5 minutes or less. Is there any workaround for this?

    You are correct, it will only clip if you'll lose 5 min or less. You can set up a manual recording for the partial show as a workaround.

    If the lower priority show is rerun, tivo will pick it up. Arrange your SP priprities so that shows with reruns are lower in priority.
