my problem ends up being - no conflict, but House will be recorded next Friday. and of course, since that's not a conflict, the scheduler won't even tell me. If I don't check, I don't even know.

I think this did happen to me once, though. I usually assault the front end by hitting enter and having it tell me just what it thinks is conflicting (and since I have overruns at both ends of programs, though not as long as yours, it takes me a few minutes to read it and figure out where the problem is) and sometimes the problem is just an overrun - which I override - but sometimes I have real conflicts.

We did go thru this a couple of months ago. Someone would know where - if what we said then, applied now.
In the meantime, keep working on the girlfriend. Especially if she has any celebrity crushes - those power searches are great! (and you can set them and forget them, plus, if you hear something last minute on your favorite artist while you are at work, you can still record it via mythweb)
