Nope.  This was something I wanted to tackle someday but I'm not yet 
comfortable with all the scheduling code to try my hand at it yet.  For 
now I just record Lost on my ReplayTV and West Wing on Myth because the 
Replay can't handle it either.  I figured an option to allow the 
scheduler to start a program within X minutes of the start time if it 
finds that it could start recording it now despite a previous conflict.
