Currently it works in two different ways. One is that there a priorities 
that you can setup which will automatically select a program of higher 
rank over a lower ranked program. The rankings can be set in TV-Schedule 
Recordings-Recording Priorities. Left and right will increase and 
decrease the rank of a program. This can be turned off in Setup-TV 
Settings-Recording Priorities-General. Uncheck the box that says "Use 
recording priorities". You can also (and this is what I do). Is have the 
priorities turned on, but uncheck "Recording priorities first". That 
makes the normal method of override to work. So you can find a program 
that you want and hit "Spacebar" and select it to record instead 
(actually, if you don't completely turn of recording priorities, then 
you have to disable the program that is actually going to record instead).

As far as the highlighted conflicts, they don't seem to be available 
anymore. The scheduler seems to always pick a show, rather than not 
record anything. I don't know what it bases this pick on. That is 
probably likely to change because I think there is going to be a new 
scheduler in the near future.

Hope that helped.
