My TiVo failed me last night. I got last season's final episode of The West Wing, but not the premiere! The problem is that my local NBC affiliate (KSL) start some programs a minute early. So I have TiVo set to start recording one minute early. Since last night's episodes were back-to-back, it recorded the first one, but didn't record the second because of the conflict caused by the one minute overlap. Why isn't TiVo smart enough to deal with scheduling conflicts on a "best effort" basis and at least record what it can? In this case, since they were one the same channel I wouldn't have lost anything. Sigh... In the meantime, if anyone has the last night's new episode on DVD or tape, I'm anxious to see it.
