You've got at least a couple of options.  Is the program shown at only
those times?  If not, you can use a power search, recording rule and
choose the last showing.  Another way is to create a power, priority
rule for the program and one of the channels.  Either raise the
priority of the channel with the earlier showing or lower the priority
of the channel with the later showihg.
