I will hold on to my PVR-350 (and its dreaded TV Out) and PVR-150
until they pry them out of my cold, dead... Well, not really, but I am
happy enough with analog cable for now. There's certainly plenty to
watch, and I don't need any of the premium channels requiring set-top
boxes, etc. I know that my provider (Cablevision, Long Island, NY) is
not adding new channels to this service in order to encourage the
swtich to digital cable. Oh well. For now I will stick with what I've
got, record two shows at once on any channel, and watch the shows I
can't get by putting the DVDs on my Netflix queue.

Regarding your question, I think you're right that the only way to
avoid recording at the wrong time is to disable the earlier recording.
