In seriousness you could set up a manual recording for 8:00 to 8:30, just go into menu, recording, manage recordings. Manual record.
Yeah, that's what I did, but this will just record CBS every Thursday from 8 to 8:30, whether the episode is first run or not. So I guess I need to keep both so I can tell when to keep the manual version to record a new episode, or cancel the manual recording if no new episode is scheduled. Sort of messy and a pain, I guess, but I'm not getting a new DVR.

1. Big Bang Theory
2. Last Resort
3. Up All Night
4. Manual, record from 8:30 - 9 NBC
Chances are Up All Night will be shown multiple times int he week, as that happens a lot with nbc shows.. Of course, ABC likes to do that too, with their newer series on saturday nights... Either way, I'd make all the regular series links as well, in case any of the shows changes days or the change the start and stop timing....
Either that or get an hr34..

I've read on multiple Internet pages (so it must be right), that because of their higher ratings, some shows command higher commercial rates. So the networks take those shows and extend them by that minute to get additional revenues.
What's with that :31, anyway?
Multiple DVRs or the 34 will probably be the easiest solution since the shows you're interested in are not typically repeated throughout the week like on TNT or USA. Have you checked the network pages or VOD channels to see if they are streaming any of these shows at a later date?

From what I've read trh is right about the commercial thing. It's all about the money.
I'll try that, too, thanks. What's with that :31, anyway?
...although, it just could be about messing with DVRs; creating an artificial conflict and keep the tuner on their channel.
Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth. That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Which gets back to the bottom-line answer:
It's all about the money.

How does a HR34 solve the issue?
I believe having 5 tuners solves it. There is no recording conflict in this scenario if you just had a 3rd tuner.

Can record 5 programs at once, and has twice (or more) the hard drive space of any other DirecTv DVR.
