This has happened on my 612. Some shows we DVR only new episodes of during the regular season went to reruns in summer. We filled the time slot with other summer time shows and I guess because the new episode recordings for the already filled fall primetime slot were weeks away, it allowed the recording on a different channel, same time without a conflict. Then when the original set timer primetime new episodes came back in the fall it had more shows than it had tuners.

I'm not sure how far ahead the 612 "looks" for conflicts when you set a recording, but the program guide only goes a week or so. So if a recording comes back weeks later it gives you no warning and bumps the lower priority recording out.

I wonder if they could tweek the DVR software to look for conflicts more often and not just when a timer recording is set.

I can't really complain that my 612 will "only" record 3 HD shows at one time while I watch a fourth DVR'd though. Anybody remember VCR's?
