I agree auto-conflict handling would be nice. I also have other things I wish were implemented, but I'm happy with Channels.
TiVo is years ahead in auto-conflict handling because they've been around that long and it's a closed box proprietary system. Handling scheduling conflicts for an open system like ChannelsDVR with multiple access points, multiple tuners and channel priorites is not an easy task.
I give the devs credit for being responsive to issues and continually improving the Channels experience and am willing to work-around some issues I have with my view of how I want it to work.
If I was unhappy with Channels I would quit paying for it and go to...(?)
That's why I'm still here.
