        Well, you could have done this (set it to record the show in
the next time slot) at any time.  That's what I usually do if I
realize the current recording might run past its scheduled time.  It's
not as nice for archiving purposes (because there is more than one nuv
file) but it's good enough if you just wanted to watch it.
