Resolving conflicts is why you buy a Tivo in the first place. Conflicts happen all the time, and Tivo resolves them automatically. Yours is doing it right now. Sometimes it does it immediately after processing the new guide data download. Why does it matter if it also does this on Sunday and Thursday nights? The new feature you seek is called "Video on Demand" and has been in all cable DVRs for the last 10 years or so. Which is why there's not a lot of general demand for CBS and FOX to fix the problem. Only Tivo owners have the problem. And the easiest workaround for them is to lengthen the recording by an hour. Another workaround that fixes this problem is called "watching it from the website" or "streaming" as the kids (those under the age of 35) like to call it. Notebooks and Chromebooks have an HDMI output port, right? Maybe your smart TV or Fire TV/Chromecast/stick already has an app for that as well. Today, there are many ways to get an occasional missed recording. I don't think Tivo wants to put a lot of resources into fixing this particular problem.
