    When the SP is created, isn't the SP order the only way to set the priority? I'm not sure what you mean by tweaking the priority for different events.

    I'm also a little confused about some of the conflicts. In my SP Manager, NBC is #1, CNBC is #2. For example, if Hockey is on from 2:30-5:00 on CNBC, and Luge and Skiing is on from 3:00-6:00, will the overlap protection clip CNBC?

    Overlap protection only works when shows overlap by 5 minutes or less, so in your case, since NBC is the higher priority, your CNBC scheduled recording for hockey will be cancelled and Luge/Skiing will be recorded instead.

    Even if CNBC starts earlier?

    I'm pretty sure it won't, since NBC has the higher priority. You'll see an entry in your recording history that will probably say it was not recorded because it conflicted with a higher priority recording ... it won't record 30 minutes of CNBC and then switch to NBC at 3:00.

    Yep, you're right, it recorded the higher priority even though it was later.

    That's not what murgatroyd meant about tweaking the priority for different events though right?

    So far so good, but it's only been 2 days. ;)

    I think what murgatroyd meant was that by having an ARWL for specific events (say curling) you could put that ARWL higher in your priority list than NBC and CNBC so curling would always cause other recordings at the same time to be cancelled, even if they started earlier, like you just saw in your CNBC/NBC example.

    Exactly.

    Or, if you wanted to see curling, but not at the expense of the other recordings, you could put it lower, and it would only record when nothing else was scheduled to be in that timeslot.
