Go to TV->Schedule Recordings->Fix Conflicts . For each show that
is scheduled during the 'off the air' period, highlight it, press
Enter (SELECT) and click "Don't record". A second or two later the
item will turn gray and the status column will show "X".
This will do a couple things, like you said, it will free up a
tuner to possibly record another show. Also, if the show you
missed has multiple showings, the scheduler will know it needs
to record it at another time.
If the station comes back sooner than expected, go back to the
conflicts page, hit Enter and choose "Clear Override".
