Because delaying a high-priority show to record a low priority show
creates a risk that a schedule change could result in the loss of the
high priority show. It's a feature.
If you want to have the schedule optimized the way you suggest, then the
answer is to enable the "Reschedule Higher Priorities" option on the
"Recording Priorities" setup page on the frontend menu. This option
tells Myth that it's OK to bump high-priority shows if they exist
elsewhere in the schedule.
