    I would like to have an option to mark a onepass as "lowest priority". There are shows like The Simpsons that I like but I don't want them to ever take priority over anything else. There are plenty of unwatched episodes that I can watch instead. Also I don't want to distinguish between the 49th and 50th show in my onepass list. If there is ever any conflict, don't record any of the shows I have marked "lowest priority". The biggest problem is that whenever I add a new show, it goes to the end of the list until I manually move it up to higher priority. But I have a bunch of shows that I know should always be lower priority than any new shows I add unless they too are marked "lowest priority". The other problem is that if I want to record a football game or something when The Simpsons is on, I get that warning box asking if I want to clip the lowest priority show on the list. But often that isn't the simpsons but instead some other show that I don't want clipped. So I end up having to cancel, navigate through all the menus and move the other show above the Simpsons in the priority list, and then come back and set the game to record again. The whole thing takes a couple minutes and there have been times that I just give up because I'm busy. If I could just mark the Simpsons and other shows like it in my list as lowest priority and to always yield to all other shows, I wouldn't have to ever address that warning box.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my request!

    How would you differentiate between multiple “lowest priority” shows? Maybe a priority list that you can sort to fit your needs?

    I understand that this sortable master list is the way it currently works, and I agree that it is very helpful, but my point was that I don't want to have to differentiate between multiple lowest priority shows. I don't want any of them to record whenever there is any conflict at all. The problem I really have is that new onepasses automatically have the lowest priority (please correct me if this is configurable). At the bottom of the list, new onepasses will always lose out to the Simpsons until I go into the settings and manually move it up, and this process is somewhat time consuming compared to how easy it is to add a new onepass.

    I'm confused. All you need to do to accomplish this is select "The Simpsons" in the One Pass list and move it to the bottom, correct? What am I missing?
