I have plenty of schedules where one show records immediately after
the other and I get them both with no problems (both on the same
channel as well as on different channels). Are you sure that the first
show ends at 10:00pm (say) and the second begins at 10:00pm? For
example, ABC "Alias" actually starts one minute late and ends two
minutes "late", presumably to intentionally cause conflicts with shows
on other network channels ...

Yes, you can enter both positive and negative numbers in the "start
early" and "end late" boxes.

I don't have any other ideas.
