    I didn't realize this until just now, and was able to correct it by getting my other DVR to record the third show but...

    There is a potential three way conflict tonight with three popular shows:
    Survivor is two hours tonight (8pm to 10pm ET).
    Kitchen Nightmares is two hours tonight (8pm to 10pm ET).
    The Office is one hour tonight (9pm to 10pm ET).

    Hopefully everybody else noticed this, because I didnt!

    I'd say there is definitely a three-way conflict with popular shows, but it definitely does not include Kitchen Nightmares.

    and the conflict was Survivor being 2 hours - Grey's Anatomy being 2 hours and Supernatural crossing over both of them. The Office and that other show - not even on my radar :)

    Umm, this thread isn't in the Season Pass Alerts forum. Somebody has a TV conflict and wants to mention it; this is the forum for TV.

    My three way conflict tonight was the 2nd hour of Survivor conflicted with The Office and the first hour of Grey's Anatomy. I let the TiVo handle Survivor and Grey's; I imagine I'll Hulu the Office, or else download it.

    Actually this would qualify as a SP Alert since Survivor will normally air at 8-9 and KN from 9-10. Tonight both were airing from 8-10.

    Dump Survivor and KN and you're good to go for the season!

    Amateur. I had a FIVE way conflict last night. :D

    Kitchen Nightmares
    My Name is Earl
    Ugly Betty

    I actually had to figure out how to work my god-awful FiOS DVR for the first time.

    In a few more days that thread title could get confusing. :)

    I think the date should be included in the thread title.

    But, in reference to the problem, all the more reason to have more than one DVR. :D

    Slightly fixed for my own situation, though I'd swear that I too had as many as 5 programs being recorded.... I just can't recall what the 5th one was.

    Despite my general hatred of CBS for their football/60 minutes scheduling issues on Sunday nites, I did want to check out the first episode of Survivor filmed in HD, so I had that one on.

    Kitchen Nightmares and My Name is Earl were both going to be caught too, and I was also flipping back and forth a bit to see if I could get an udpate on whether or not the Nationals were going to be rained out or not.

    FiOS DVR here (which I share the same thoughts about) got 2 tuners worth, DirecTV DVR got 2 tuners worth as well, and I had the MCE box showing me programming too....

    Gotta love the networks for jamming Thursday nights full of programs all competing for my viewing.

    I had 3 way conflict with Survivor, My Name is Earl and Smallville. I haven't watched Survivor since Australia. I added it because I wanted to see it in HD. I'm just going to get Earl off the interwebs.

    That's easy. None of those shows are worth recording. simply delete all three SP and there is no problem. Sorry, couldn't resist.;)

    Exactly. Personally I find Monday night much more problematic. Last year it was so bad that I gave up on watching "Chuck" or "Aliens in America" even before they started.
