In "General Recording Priorities Settings" of frontend settings:
Reschedule Higher Priorities
Move higher priority programs to other cards and showings when resolving
conflicts. This can be used to record lower priority programs that
would otherwise not be recorded, but risks missing a higher priority
program if the schedule changes.
(Note, also, that if you didn't set priorities for your rules, older
rules (those with lower recordid's) are given higher priority. So, if
you didn't explicitly set Nova's priority higher than Las Vegas's, you
created the rule to record Nova first.)
