I understand. You’re saying “don’t use the DVR to record your stuff–it’s that simple.” Then you declare that to be “all the tools you need”.
Could be. But given that the idea of sorting your series in a preferred order has been out in the wild for many many many years now, it’s stunning that anyone would say “this is easy–just go in and stop recording the series that’s conflicting. It’s the only tool you need.”
And again, given that you get new schedule data every night, the user is now in the position of going to the conflicts page regularly–every day, even–to check on conflicts. And given how often the programmers change the schedule around, you never know what you’re going to find.
