Myth can only do what it has been told.  Scheduling tells it to run till
9:01 for Grey.  Scheduling tells it to start at 9:00pm for ER.  Change one
or the other.  You can't expect it to "magically" figure out what to do.  If
you don't like setting ER to always start a minute late, then you will have
to watch your Upcoming Recordings for conflicts and correct them on a
one-off basis.
