It seems that while a useful suggestion, it is best addressed by the 
"record new episodes only" option discussed earlier in the thread 
combined with the "record at any time" schedule.  Unfortunately it has 
the drawbacks previously noted but those more more upgrade issues that 
won't affect future use. 

Now, for those that don't have this feature available due to grabber 
issues, a toggleable item in the scheduling options for something like 
"Allow recording in alternate timeslots" to prompt the system to search 
for better options for *this timeslot* in other timeslots is interesting.
