scheduler is not properly disabling shows when another is forced to override it

I just noticed (through mythweb) that the scheduler is not properly disabling shows when another is forced to override it.

For example, this sunday I have both Iron Chef America (10PM) and Grey's Anatomy (10:01) scheduled. Since my Iron Chef is on again later, and my wife would kill me if she missed Grey's Anatomy, I put in an override to record the latter. Yet the scheduler is now telling mythweb that BOTH will be recorded.

I think I recall seeing this behavior with shows on at the same time, too, not just the 1-minute offset.. and have definitely seen it between half-hour and hour-long shows.

Will update to latest head tonight, since I'm a week or so old, but I didn't see any tickets about this, so I'll assume it's a new issue.

From Bruce:

On the same page as "Reschedule Higher Priorities" TV Settings-> Recording Priorities->Set Recording Priorities, There is a field for "Override Recording Priority". This will automatically add this amount when an override is evaluated. If you had this set to 4 or more, Grey's Anatomy would have won. This is for this kind of situation. If you want overrides to automatically win, set to to be enough to beat anything based on your priority habits.

Anyway, this means that I just need to update my database with the new setting, and the problem goes away. No need to change my code other than to someday provide an editor for such things.
